They last for months before the flowers drop and can be cared for easily with a weekly watering
and will re-bloom in 6 months on a windowsill with bright indirect light.
I like to opt for white as they fit into any decor.
The Phalaenopsis are a very easy care variety of orchid and are readily available at most florists and supermarkets.
Prices vary widely and the more blooming stems the plant has usually affects the price.
They are more expensive than the single stemmed orchids.
There have been a few sales of orchids lately and I have been tempted but resisted.
Today I could not walk away from this one as the price was unbelievable!

Pepper was extremely curious when I unwrapped this orchid
she has a distinct "taste" for greenery
I put it up high
well out of harms way!
This orchid is actually for the Bungalow...
For my Hostess
I purchased a brightly dyed scarf for my hostess
with her colours in mind
and I will be bringing wine...
Plans for the weekend include a visit to an Aveda Spa
I am going to be a guest for the weekend on a Gulf Island
in a waterfront home of a dear friend
so I'll catch up with you early next week...
there will be laughter
and a comfortable familiarity
that allows us to share
confident and safe
and just be
in the moment
I'll be watching the shoreline
listening to the sound of the waves...
what will you be doing?
Hope that you all have a great weekend!
Hugs from The Hostess
