    Default Rescue Dendrobium Orchid Plant

    While out running my errands this morning, I happened to end up at a box storeI was there about a week ago picking up some material to re-pot some of my orchids. While I was there I had to check out the indoor nursery. Their orchids looked horrible!! They were all dying , but there was one that sparked my interest. I figured that if it was still alive when I came back that I would ask them if I could buy it at a discounted price. She was still there and this time instead of having no water. They had decided to drowned them all by filling all the barely living orchid pots with water. Lifting her out of her near death experience, I brought her home. Well here she is.....

    So just a quick thought: When hiring someone to care for an indoor nursery. I would think that one would hire someone who had at least a general understanding of how to care for plants.

    I will let you know how she does. I guess in the end it all worked out for me!!

    Uhm, no. I have a friend who is a great gardener, and a trained landscape designer. Unable to find work in her field, she works at a big box store, in the design your kitchen area. It horrifies her the way the nursery area is handled...just hourly folks with no plant background, and gievn no training at all in caring for plants.
