    Default My first earned bloom!

    Hi everyone,

    It's been a little while since I've been on...had a lot of court stuff going on from the accident but it's slowed down quite a lot now and life is a little less stressful for the time being!
    I wanted to share my very first earned bloom... Den. White Baby "Darling" (bigbb Baby Pink) ...
    It had a fungus and I treated it and repotted it and it just went crazy growing and bloomed right away...so don't know if I really "earned" it or not since I have many other orchids for alot longer that have not bloomed yet...but still it bloomed under my care...so I'm counting it lol!!!
