Ok .. I have finally been seduced by Costco's orchid display .. and further pulled in by a very nice women who assured me that these particular types are hard to kill ? .. that above all is a winning card for me. The name is "Phalaenopsis" .. or Moth Orchid, as I strolled through the net for more information ..
This took me more time, to decide on one ,out of the many varieties of colours, than my own hair colour .. believe me .. a LONG time .. especially for a willy nilly Libra who has to weigh all of the consequences ofeach, and every action, every day !
It made good sense not to get one fully blown out with those gorgeous blooms .. to have some unopened buds and not too long an arm ? .. just general observations I make with most plants .. but having said that .. I am a virgin to orchids .. so if anyone has any vital information that might save this orchid, and my sanity .. please feel free to interject that point and any other to save what is left of my mind .. Thank You !
