This cutie just opened up earlier this week. It's a blend of soft spring colors. See that little white packet in the pot. That's slow-release fertilizer wrapped up in a small piece of netting fabric. So, everytime I water the orchid it gets a little fertilizer. This is one of my "mom's ideas" (sorry for mentioning that mom!). And, since she told me about it our orchids look better than ever.
And, this orchid's name should be "faithful" because it blooms about every other month 'year round. I've had it for 20+ years, and I still get excited when I see new blooms on it.
