I bought this orchid from the Farmer’s Market for only five dollars. I just like the bright colors of the flowers. I like orchids because they are not really hard to care for. Just water them thoroughly when dry and leave them alone. They don’t like to be moved about so what you do is find a semi-permanent place where they can tended if needed. Just put them where they would have enough bright light in the shady part of the garden. Once every month you may put some orchid fertilizer and then just sit and relax. You’ll be surprised one day when the blooms start to show and to me that would be a big accomplishment.
