First, here are some pictures of my lovely, lovely orchid blossoms!
Today I repotted (for the first time, ever) the other orchid that I've got. It suffered some neglect at the other house (getting knocked out of it's pot by a dog, not getting watered regularly, etc) and it did not look pretty.
That last picture is upside down, but I can't fix it. Poor thing was falling out of it's little planter, it wouldn't stay in! So, I got it a bigger one, and some new orchid potting soil!
Also, I got a new bucket (the one I bought last week was defective!) to water the hanging orchid in. Hanging orchids are different, they need to be submerged in water about once a week instead of being watered from above. My new bucket:
It works well! Before I watered my orchid, I trimmed all of the dead pieces off of it, because I didn't see the point of keeping them. It looked pretty raggedy...
Then, I hung them both up again!
It looks dark in the bathroom, but it's actually not! It was just raining outside at this point...
Oh, I also bought a spray bottle so I can spray them, so they'll have a bit more humidity.
I love them, they're so fun!
