I love orchids, they are beautiful. I've also killed a few. They are a fickle beast particularly in a house that doesn't get a lot of sunlight and is not the warmest place. Since I recieved this little lady (for Christmas from my boss) I have been determined NOT to kill it.
So she's gone into the half bath. It gets the most sunlight and stays pretty warm because it is a teeny tiny room with a regular sized radiator.
I also put it in a pot specifically made for orchids, eventually her roots will come crawling out the sides. In potting soil specifically for orchids. Fickle Beast. I'll keep you updated.
