Gardening A to Z: O is for Orchid

The orchid is a flower that has eluded me through my years of gardening. They are absolutely gorgeous. I see them all the time in the stores. I desperately want to have a purple one growing in my house or in my classroom. But they are just too tempermental for me.

I usually have somewhat of a green thumb, so I thought I would give one a try. I think it lasted maybe a week. I don't think it was attacked by my cat. She pretty much left my plants alone. I think I just didn't understand all that it really took to care for one of these delicate flowers. Some day, when I have more time, I will probably take the time to read up on them more and see if I can try it again.
