My fullly blooming orchid made the home a bit bright in the dull winter. I got it from my husband as a gift on the 1st anniversary. I'm happy it still grows well after 7 years. It has been in the bathroom all the time which is the best place to put according to the experts. About once a month, I apply a bit Orchid Feed. Last year, my husband took it to the orchid centre and wanted to change to a bigger pot. The staff cut some old roots away and repotted in the same pot with new composts. Afterwards, it grows much faster.
Since the good experience with the first orchid, I bought myself a different colour one. It only cost me £1.5 as a sale item. Sometimes, it is not that the cheaper, the worse. My orchid normally blooms once a year and each time lasts a couple of months.
It is February now. The seeds are already in the market. I bought cress, spring onion, salad leaf and cat grass. The cress suppose to be very easy to grow. A kitchen towel and some water. That's it! Can you see the roots? It's only 2 nights later. I expect to have them in my plate in 2 weeks.
