Orchid pics

I have been absent from the blog for a while and while I have wanted to post for a while, life gets in the way!

Here's some gratuitous orchid pics.....

I am really into these phalanopsis orchids at the moment. They last for months and look so stunning! They don't mind being dry in their pots so they are easy care too. I have them scattered all over my house. I bought a couple last year. One died, but I think it got too wet. I have not figured out the secret to get them to bloom again for the next year, but they are alive and healthy.

These ones I bought from Big W about a month ago. They don't always have them, so when they do I snap them up quick smart!

Anyone else an Phal orchid lover?


  1. Hi - they certainly are lovely. I have given up on potted plants for the time being - while I still have a toddler in the house I find they just don't last. xx

    1. I know what you mean Caroline! It has taken us until our youngest is nearly 5 to have potplants in our house.

      I love the Orchids, they are funny things though. Finnicky, yet so tough sometimes. That doesn't make much sense at all I realise, but certain ones won't drop their flowers in the hottest/driest days, but move them to another spot and they start dropping like mad! I just wish I knew the secret to getting a repeat blooming!
