The Orchid

My first plant: The Orchid

Phalaenopsis Orchid

Phalaenopsis Orchid

This was not actually the first plant that I had. It is actually the first plant that didn’t die on me. I like to pretend that I know a thing or two about orchids.

The Phalaenopsis orchid is the type that is the most readily available in any store. It is the easiest of all orchids to take care of. I only have to water them one day a week because they hate puddles on their roots. If you come to own one of these lovely plants then make sure the pot has proper filtration (hole in the bottom). A healthy orchid should have sturdy, rich green leaves, if they get limp and wrinkle then just back off and water it a little less.
