Orchid Green Thumb

My sister sent our grandma a potted amarylis bulb for Christmas. I was surprised to discover on our trip home that it had burst into bloom. I think her house is ideal for flowers... warm and bright.

I have never seen anyone have such luck with orchids also.

Some of these are blooming for the third time.

I think my house is too cool for orchids.

Not only are they not re-blooming but I've killed off several now.

The exception are these three mini-orchids I keep in the kitchen. One trooper even has some growth that looks like it will have blooms on! Exciting!
