I’ve wanted an orchid plant for many years but was always afraid that I would be unsuccessful at keeping it alive.
Every time, I saw one for sale, I would contemplate seriously but did not want to spend all kinds of dollars only to watch it wilt away.
A few weeks ago, while at Whole Foods, I ran upon the perfect deal; moth orchids for 13 bucks! At that price, I could not resist.
I’m currently on my second set of blooms & they are gorgeous! Every time I see the flowers, I smile. I’m hoping to stumble upon some cool orchid pots to sex up the look a bit.
Over the weekend while out & about, I spotted this slipper orchid & almost purchased it on a major impulse. I had to talk myself down & that took a good 45 minutes to do. I wound up walking away hurt. I just couldn’t justify 35 bucks for a single bloom but it was so damn pretty!
Maybe next time, I’ll just do it.
