A new orchid - Schoenorchis fragrans

I bought this little miniature orchid. This is not the first time as more than 10 years back I had one too. It eventually died due to neglect. This time I am determined to make it bloom. The leaves are less than an inch and the flowers are even smaller. Perfect for my balcony.

Now hopefully under my care, it will one day look like this. This is going to be my inspiration to take good care of it. Wish me luck.


  1. Good luck! Can't wait to see it bloom. I, personally am horrible at keeping plants alive.

  2. Good luck! I'm sure you'll be gifted with tons of beautiful blooms1

  3. You can do it!!

    I know that if you put as much attention in to your new Orchid as you do your tatting, it will be beautiful and blooming in no time!

  4. Lily,
    I think you have a point. If only!! I will try.

    Thank you for your optimism and confidence.

    Am I still me,
    I wonder somethimes (am I still me . . .). I have been known to turn them brown (the plants).
