Just because you've only got houseplants doesn't mean you don't have the gardening spirit - I look upon myself as an indoor gardener.
I mentioned a few posts ago in February that while at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show I got waylaid at Andy’s Orchids booth. I bought an Australian native species orchid, Dendrobium pugioniforme, basically because I fell in love with the leaves! Bad idea I know but based on what he said of its culture I was also fairly certain I could make it happy. He had me sold when he said it's flowers had greenish petals with a purple and white lip. I love green flowers.
Today it made me happy…it bloomed! Yay a bright spot on this grey drizzly day, it’s soooo sweet. It’s tiny…only 1 inch (2.5 cm) across, and fragrant too! I can’t take credit for this bloom, it was already in bud, so my test will be if it will bloom again for me someday.
