Day 24 of my "365 Daysproject.  White orchid.

My white Phalaenopsis orchid is blooming. This is quite an achievement for me as I struggled for years keeping them alive. A friend told me a few years ago that I shouldn't hover over them and just water them when I remember. Which I started doing and this is the result!

I keep them in a west window and water them once a week - I submerse them in water for a few minutes. They get some fertilizer every second week or so. You can also give them a weak weekly dose (the so called "weakly weekly"). It seems they don't need more than that!
