First In Show

Who remembers my "just add ice" orchid??
It came with lot's of blooms but eventually they all faded.
And when I say faded, I mean...
I went several weeks with nothing, not one single flower.

But then, just like magic, on January 4th, I saw this,

and on January 28th it looked liked this.

It opened quickly and on January 30th it looked like this.

On February 2nd, this sight took my breath away!

This is what I'm looking at today, and there are several more on the way.
A "just add ice" orchid, if you ever see one, buy it.
It's worth every penny and I didn't kill it!

  14. I have two orchids that I transplanted a couple of weeks ago. They haven't died yet, but no blooms either.

    I'm so happy for you that you didn't manage to kill your lovely bloom. :)

  18. You know, it's funny Debbie, I have had orchids for 25+ years, and up until very recently had never heard of the "add ice."

    This one is a true beauty, and I think they bloom at the perfect time of year (when we have just about had it with winter!).

    Happy day to you!
