Happy Valentine's Day Everybody!!!! Today I received an orchid for V-Day!! Looks like I don't have to go a whole year after all!!!
I have had my eye on this dark purple Den NOID for a couple of weeks now. The color is stunning (pics are true to color). I have some bark soaking right now, so I will be re-potting and doing the usual inspection of it tomorrow. I'm sure that the roots are trashed and will need to be tended carefully, but I couldn't help but want this chid!!
I have attached pictures of the plant, flowers and some troublesome leaves. I am going to treat the plant with listerine tomorrow once I have it out of the sphag it in, trim the dead roots, hopefully, there will be some left!!
I did a general inspection at the store, in front of the flower dept person, because I am not shy about those types of things. The roots I felt were mush! My husband asked me if I could save it and I said of course I can!!!
