Blooming Orchid!!

This is my orchid. Its in my bathroom. My husband got it for me about 3 years ago. When he brought it home I was like "are you crazy do you know how hard Orchids are to take care of". I was so wrong. All I did was sit it in this same spot and water it a little every week and it keeps on blooming every year. I thought for sure I was going to be throwing this away right after its blooming season.

The orchid is beautiful Cherry. I thought they were hard to take care of too. Does it grow in soil or stones?

That's lucky. I had one that bloomed for about 6 months a few years back. I guess I watered mine too much. Lovely orchid you have. Love that vibrant color of purple. Mine was white - and lovely, too. ~ Renae

It's so pretty! I admit I'm scared of keeping one as I'm awful at looking after plants!

It sure is pretty. I still am not convinced they are easy to grow so haven't taken the plunge yet. I am awful with houseplants-and sometimes with outside plants too. Have a great weekend.

Hi Cherry,
Love the orchid! I have never been brave enough to try one...maybe now I will give it a go.
Thanks for visiting my blog. My daughter will be staying home with me also. Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, pat your hubby on the back for me. Orchids are awesome! Yours is beautiful and the bathroom is the perfect spot for it.
