I hated to say 'big box stores', but like some others I can't help 'rescuing' a sad little orchid for a few bucks. I've got 1 from a show at longwood gardens, but I didn't water it enough and some from ebay, but again, they could have used more water. Haven't bought any in about 3 years, don't have the space yet. It was above 40deg F in my area on Sunday and I was sooooo tempted to go to my favorite garden center to see what they had. I was good and stayed out!
