    My First Orchid

    Recently I had a dear friend stay with me, and before he left, he bought me a beautiful orchid. I fell in love with it! I did online reserach to figure out the best way to care for it, as I don't want it to die! It's so beautiful, and I plan to obtain more orchids in the future...

    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.

    So I just noticed that an orchid

    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.

    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.
