    Great pic! Now all I need are orchids that smell like pineapple juice and rum, respectively.

    Gilda - nice! I have one - how often do you water?
    Mine is in clay and bark and seems to dry out really fast.

    LOL, Jason!

    Thanks Gilda, it is not as warm here, and I've been averaging twice a week. I may need to up it to every 3 days or so if it gets warmer, since it is in clay.
