I have to admit that I have a bit of a black thumb. I enjoy gardening, but without my lovely mother (an expert gardener) around to help, I can't even keep the hardiest specimens alive.
House plants are no exception, none are safe from my black thumb. I gave up trying years ago and haven't had a living plant in the house since, until recently when I paid a visit to my mother in law and saw how well her orchids were doing after months of blooming.
I was inspired to give tending to living plants another try. I love having fresh flowers in the house, I buy fresh cut flowers every week, so I think that these orchids are a great new start.
Wish me (and especially my new orchids) luck, we may need it:)
