One year ago a coworker presented me with a Phalaenopsis Orchid. Her boss purchased the Orchid for Secretary’s Day. This coworker did not want to take the Orchid home because “…my cats would be all over it.” I gladly accepted the Orchid from her and mentioned there was absolutely no guarantee I would keep it alive because “…I do not have a green thumb.” Well, one year later this Orchid is starting to bloom beautiful Orchids! Why? I persevered and followed the care instructions! Call me proud!
