Orchid

This is an orchid I bought from the Holden Arboretum's 2005 Orchid Show - which is more of a sale than a show but whatever. It had blossoms on it when I bought it and they eventually fell off. It lost a leaf and then grew a brand new one. I've had it over a year now and these are the first buds to appear...the anticipation of them opening is crazy! This is a very slow moving plant. I better not kill it.

That is great that your orchid is blooming. I love orchids, but I don't think I am attentive enough to grow them. I hope you post photos of the blooms someday!

You're doing great. The average for orchids like most other plants is to bloom once a year...they'll take longer than that to bloom again if you don't care for them properly

Oh my gosh how exciting!!! I can't wait to see pictures of it in full bloom.

Your husband is an architect, too?! That's insane! What a small world. Both my DH and I are still working on the many pesky years of IDP before we can take the tests - I hope your husband passed his test ok!!!
