    So now I guess I'll have to buy everything in duplicate!!

The one I ended up buying had only a few good roots left. I'm still hoping this one can be saved. Today, one of it's last buds bloomed
    Thats so funny! I do the same stuff. The so called "Florist" at the store sees me coming and starts tellin me what needs to be watered. I have explained to her over and over that they are drowning the orchids. Its cool that you take the sickly one and try to nurse it back to health! I hope you get many many more blooms in thanks for your kindness!

    Are you a psychologist? I think you should be! That is rich.
