Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Well considering what poor condition this was in when I bought it, I’m so pleased. Top right flowers are last two that were on when I bought it. Now two more flowers have grown and opened and more buds on the way. So pleased it has recovered and doing well 😁 29/05/19 #orchid #mothorchid #phalaenopsis

Alison do you cut any of the long stalk off when it’s flowered..!

@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom only when it changes colour and I know that no more buds will develop. If I’d done that with the one on the left I wouldn’t have had these new buds developing. I learnt that a while ago it’s best to leave the stems as new flowers might come. 😁

Just bought this unhappy looking #phalaenopsis #orchid from Tesco for 80p! #bargain the leaves look ok so I’m assuming it’s either been too cold or had no water. Will see if I can keep it alive 24/01/19 🤞🏼😊 #indoorplant #houseplant #mothorchid

That’s exactly what I thought! Keely, especially as it was originally £8. 😱 @Keely

@debrascott I thought so!! I couldn’t leave it there to die on the floor in Tesco!! I’ve been looking for another orchid so perfect, if I can keep it alive. 😊

@anges Definitely! Couldn’t believe it when I saw it! I thought it would still be a couple of quid but it does look very sorry for itself. It’s sitting next to my other one which is very happy so hope it likes its new home!! 😊🤞🏼
