Orchid Excitement

With the weather so cold and lots of snow, there isn't much motivation these days to blog about gardening.

However, there is a bit of exciting news about an orchid I've brought to my office:

It might RE-BLOOM!

I purchased this orchid from a big box store in July and the flowers were present until October. I read up on how to make them re-bloom quickly. I clipped the stem back to the next node. A few months later, I brought it to work, where it lives amongst a co-workers orchids in a east-facing window.

And now...there are three "branches" with buds growing! I have no idea how long it will take for them to bloom, but I am hopeful that it will be soon.
