  1. So so easy but no flowers yet Review by Ihaveaplantproblem
    How do you rate this product?

    I love this orchid soooo much. I have quite a few orchids (COUGH COUGH) but this one Ive had for two years now and its grown so big and dense. I didnt get it to flower yet but I just found out that Im putting it in too shady of a spot for the winter. I have many other plants that take window priority in the winter and sometimes my orchids suffer for it. But this year I am determined!!! Ill give it another star when I get my blooms haha (Posted on 10/2/2015)
