    Default My first grocery store rescue!!

    So I just had to share because this is my first "orchid rescue" so to speak... I've never felt so compelled to rescue one before, but this one was just sitting there, trying to bloom nicely for everyone with five canes and flowers that were beautiful, even though they were not too healthy. It was BONE DRY... so what else could I do but get it?! and after re-potting I discovered that it was actually two separate plants... not sure if the second set has the same flowers or not... I'll just have to wait and find out! Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

    Wow that is amazing...really a beautiful contrast between the light color of the flowers, the purple, and then the huge green leaves. They don't have plants like this at any grocery stores around me.

    I love dendrobiums, but unforunately I haven't had much success with them myself.

    Congrats on your awesome new plants!
