I can forgive the lack of flowers outside during our zone five winters, but to have a home devoid of any flowering plants I had to do something about this!
I headed off to Home Depot to pick up some parsley seeds and seed starting soil for my new plant light stand and guess what I saw - a huge tall rack of orchids! They are a smaller variety all in beautiful colors and one that would look perfect in my living room. I read somewhere that orchids are great decor in formal rooms. I bought two orchids at $12.98 each which seemed like a fair price for these beautiful plants.
I should tell you that I have never had an orchid, always intimidated me as far as care. Ice cubes I can do, they're called Just Add Ice Orchids (three ice cubes once a week and a little fertilizer once per month) success promised. I even signed up on their website so they will email me once per week to remind me about those ice cubes. http://www.justaddiceorchids.com/
