  • I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house, and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that, once in bloom (probably still about a month away), will bloom for months, if I keep them out of direct sunlight. One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets, and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture.

  • Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron? Are there little scabs on the under side of the leaves of your orchid?  Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster. Well, we can blame some plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.
