Orchid Success

Back in April, M.'s mom gave me an orchid. I had my doubts based on all the dead orchid stories I've heard and the general ugliness of the plant, especially when it is not blooming. I brought it to my apartment in Basel and basically neglected it. My other three plants get all kinds of love, but this one I was afraid of. Pretty quickly the blossoms wilted and the leaves looked kind of, well, like they were dying. I watered it once every 2-3 weeks, just in case it wanted to try to survive.

This morning I was stumbling around my kitchen in Basel and glanced over at the orchid, and look what I saw! It is even sprouting a new bunch of leaves.
