Good morning! I am very happy this morning. I bought an Orchid plant this spring - it was lovely when I bought it, covered in beautiful pink flowers. Over time (well, a few days to be exact) the flowers fell off, and the stem turned into a brown, lifeless little twig, and while the leaves still remained green, I was certain that it was a gonner. Nevertheless, I have continued to water the poor thing occasionally, and a few days ago I moved it upstairs to the lightest room in the house.
Anyway, I gave it a little check over earlier, and what I initially thought was just a root was actually a fresh new stem. Hurrah! (it's the one to the left facing outwards) No flowers unfortunately but there is now hope! Orchids are so tricky to care for aren't they? I have mine in a clear pot as I have been told by a friend that they like their roots to be exposed to light.
Have a lovely weekend everyone
