    So I just noticed that an orchid

    that had recently stopped blooming now has new buds on the same stalk. :) This plant alas only has three healthy leaves and has not grown a new leaf this season yet unlike most of my orchids, so part of me wonders whether I should let it flower or whether I should cut down the...

    I have orchids on my window sill.

    I love them especially on a day like today. Outside it snowed and is ice cold. Inside on the window sill tropic orchid plants bloom. The contrast is striking.

    Today I started an experiment

    that I had thought of doing a while ago: I used the water from my aquarium to water my orchids. I wonder whether this kind of fertilized water will help them grow better.

    Orchids Remind Me of My Grandfather

    My grandfather in Hawaii kept a greenhouse full of them!  He passed away in 1993, but every time I see an orchid I immediately think of him.

    In my new home I have an ice maker,
