As mentioned in a previous post, I purchased an orchid last weekend. A Doritaenopsis, to be precise. I've been meaning to take a picture of it since then, because I know it will probably never bloom again. Its flowers are already starting to wilt a bit and the unopened buds have fallen off. I suspect this is partly because it had to endure the trip home in -10 degree weather with only a plastic bag to protect it from the elements. I'm sure my being a horrible orchid care-taker has something to do with it as well. I have my fingers crossed that I've learned a few things from my mistakes in the past, and that this orchid will survive. Time will tell.
