Overtime Season Day 8: If ever see another marigold again I think I might be sick.
For the longest time orchids intimidated me. Perhaps it was their exotic look, seemingly unusual growth habit, or the fact that the majority of them have a $35.00 price tag and up. Contrary to popular belief orchids are extremely easy plants to grow. Having your orchid survive for years on end seems impossible to some but with a little research success can be yours. I bought this Phalaenopsis hybrid at Garden Works in the off season for the awesome price of $10.00. It was out of flower at the time and looked rather uninteresting, still I knew it had some hidden beauty. Nearly 3 months later it rewarded me with these incredible blooms. In the end I think it was almost more exciting to buy this orchid out of flower, as I didn’t know what to expect. Sure enough, with a little patience I was rewarded for my efforts. Amazing!
