112 in 2012 (#4)

I've been lucky enough to see this orchid I was given for my birthday last summer grow a second spike and flower for the second time.  It is blooming marvellous!



..and the secret to this success, well I did like you told me and ignored it!

This is my
#20 Wild Plant or Flower
entry for 112 in 2012

Until next time....

You have ignored your orchid very well! I am ignoring my orchid and it now has 20 buds on 2 stalks. I hope to see some flowers soon!

It's beautiful Jane -- I'm so impressed that you didn't kill it -- mine would never have made it to a second bloom LOL!

Magnificent magic and what a fabulous photo. Such beauty you bring to use with the ability you have in that camera of yours.

I just got my first orchid plant and am hoping I can care for mine as well as you are yours!

I am ignoring my orchid and a leaf fell off yesterday. I think it is still alive so I am hopeful. Yours is just magnificent Jane and the photograph is so beautiful and crisp.
