Rescued Orchid

I buy plants that are marked down at stores that need to be re-potted. This way I get nice plants, but at a bargain price and save the life of a plant. This was in a broken pot with no blooms. It was my first time to grow an orchid.

I envy you...this is the one plant I want to grow and surround myself with.....maybe I'll see what I can rescue from the neighborhood nurseries. I already rescue bichon frises.

Here's Candie. She spent 3 years in a puppymill cage in North Carolina and is enjoying blitzing through our house and sleeping in a real bed with her humans and brother maltese.

Oh what a beautiful combination - rescued plants and rescued doggies. I love it. Don't tell anyone, but orchids are easy to grow.

My Mom said she bought some dried up discounted plants at a local store. Some were as low as .10 to .50 cents ea. She said she figured if they didn't come back out, she'd not lost much. She said they not only came back out, but ended up being some of her most beautiful plants! So don't pass up those scrawny or dried up plants.
