    Default I haven't killed any orchids this year yet!

    This year has been my most successful year. I replanted everything to clay pebbles except for the vandas that I left bare root. I also moved them all under a tree in my backyard. My husband installed a mister that runs for 15 minutes everyday.

    I am so happy with the orchids that I've gotten my 10th "almost in its deathbed" orchid from the hardware store that they sell me for $5 and they all went gangbusters on producing roots. They probably won't be able to bloom for a year or two or more trying to recover so I'm excited for the future.

    Here's my blooms this year:

    Nice!

    I used to kill a lot, but they tend to survive for me now. You can teach an old dog new tricks - just takes a while longer.
