This phalaenopsis is the most trouble free plant I've ever had. Our friends gave it to us as a dinner gift one evening. That was over 10 years ago. I do absolutely nothing to it. It lives in the shade and feeds on air and moisture. Every so often, it surprises us with some blossoms that last a long time.…

That's the nice thing about a garden. As long as you don't have turbulent…Continue
