My most recent plant, which is an anniversary present, is about to shed its last flowers. It has lasted just over two months. Not bad, considering the not-so-ideal orchid environment in my apartment.

For my birthday, last year in April, I received this plant with lemon coloured flowers. It’s about to burst into flowers soon, so it will make a nice replacement for the above mentioned anniversary plant.

Finally, I have the two 2009 Saint Valentine’s orchids which are doing just fine and flowering as if it were spring.

(Also notice the poorly doing specimen in the middle!)
And there are the three plants that are doing really poorly. I fear they won’t last till summer. But then there will be room for a new one… which is an interesting idea with Saint Valentine coming up. Will you be celebrating Saint Val? Or do you think it’s just another clever merchansing trick?
