Decorating With Orchids

Do You Decorate With Orchids?

For years, my experience with orchids was spotty at best. Oftentimes they died shortly after blooming, and I never had any that rebloomed. But three years ago I was given an orchid that has, since that time, rebloomed eight times, and just this past week, another orchid displayed three new flowers. When I met with gardening expert Flora Grubb last week, she told me that the real secret to orchids is to leave them alone: don't repot them, and once they find a sunny spot that they like, leave them there. Apparently I'd been heeding this advice through simple laziness. Hey, if it works, why change?

I have one at my desk at work that I was given so I didn't care of it died or not, but within the first week it bloomed 2 more flowers and keeps going. I just water it once a week and its been doing well.
