Baby Orchid

March 15, 2010


When we first moved into our condo, one of the first things I wanted to get was a new orchid. It was supposed to brighten up our home and make it look pretty.

But Andrew nipped that idea in the bud and we have been orchid-less... until now! We finally got ourselves a little tiny one!

You see, orchids are supposed to be pretty hard to kill. The little tag it came with says it's "elegant and low maintenance" but somehow, I managed to kill not one, but two orchid plants.

When we picked it up, Andrew joked that we should just put it straight into the garbage because that's where it'll end up pretty soon anyway. (You were joking... right?)

Andrew reassured me that those other orchids died because I was never home to properly take care of them. So far, I've been really careful with it, and it's been about a week and it's still alive - whoo hoo!

really? pretty hard to kill? I've always heard that orchids are hard to take care of. you can't over water them and my gardening friend said water is technically not supposed to overwhelm the roots or something like that, so I never know how much to water them! haha
so don't worry, I don't think it's your bad green thumb.
