Happy International Women’s Day everyone!
Today I’m dedicating these photos of an orchid I gave to my mother for Mother’s Day two years ago - it’s currently blooming for the first time since I gave it to her, which is exciting to see!
It desperately needs to be repotted, but that has to wait until the blooms have fallen, and Spring is well underway. As a result, it’s not the healthiest, and actually had one bloom fall before it had a chance to open; hopefully it will thrive better in a new pot, although it may be another two years before you see blooms again, since it’s taken two years for it to bounce back from the last repotting (my bonsai took a whole year; I guess orchids are even slower!).
