A Bit of Gardening

in ocd •  5 months ago 

Recently my beloved Orchid plant bloomed. The bloom lasted for two months. I hadn’t realized Orchid flowers can last so long.

Not long after the flowers fell off, the plant grew a new shoot. I was very pleased to see that.

It was a healthy shoot and it grew very quickly.

Unfortunately, space was a little tight as it struggled to grow between two other older plants. Something has to be done. I considered transplanting it, but I didn’t want to risk killing it in the process.

So, the only option was to snip off one of the other plant/stem.

That worked. The new shoot was very happy with the extra space, and it grew quite a bit in the space of a few days.

Hopefully, there will be another bloom like the previous one before too long.

Right, I did say it was a bit of gardening.

I don't think Orchid do well indoors. 😊

Don't know anything about them. Maybe later.
