I love Orchids. They are one of my favorite flowers, the other two are Roses and Plumera (just in case you wanted to send me flowers). Over the years a few well meaning people have given me an orchid plant as a gift. Sadly I have killed them all and there have been at least .......mental counting......10 or more. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I read up on how to care for them and followed all the instructions but they never survive. I had a two or three that I kept alive for years, they never bloomed again but I was just happy they didn't die immediately but then for no reason at all they died.
I am a multiple orchid murderer. Maybe I'll stick with silk flowers from now on.
