Several months ago I visited one of our garden centers.
This Orchid was on their "sale" or throw away pile and had "bugs".
It had three stems loaded with buds.
I couldn't resist the temptation to save it.
This is my reward....
It looked like this with the three stems and buds.
Now it has started to bloom and I no longer see signs of infestation.
I usually don't have a lot of luck with orchids but
what the heck??
These had a really good start..
You can see the other buds starting to bloom as well.
My cottage gets a lot of sun and my humidifier is running.
The previous nursery owners would have treated these plants ,
made them healthy and then sold them.
Today, it seems, everything is disposable....
My Christmas/Easter cactus is blooming as well.
They must be happy.
