Green Thumb Sunday
The ICU was given a lovely orchid plant by a grateful family.
In the pot are 2 different orchids one a large pure white with a touch of yellow and the other smaller with pink rosy colour on white.
The poor thing was starting to suffer due to the poor light and over watering of some eager staff.
It was decided I should take it home and save it as my fellow workers know how much
I love gardening. It is such a beautiful plant I just could not turn down the offer.
I did not have the heart to tell the nurses I have one other orchid that I haven't killed but since its original flowering I have not been able to get it to re flower tho the foliage is bright green and very healthy looking.
I think I will have to do some research into the type and care of this beauty.
