My rescue orchid from Lowe's has bloomed! I was hoping that it would be white, but I don't mind this color. It's a shade of burgundy with spots of green - a very interesting combination for sure. Over the years, I've heard many people say that orchids are difficult to grow. But I've not had that experience. I water them once a week and pretty much leave them alone. Mine face a north window and are never moved. The room is quiet and pleasant - two factors I believe help. The only thing I don't like about orchids? They are fragrance free. I've heard that a single Korean orchid can fill an entire room with fragrance - but they are difficult to obtain and very, very expensive.
