The orchid has always looked green and healthy, and I just never could bring myself to give up on it. This summer before we went on vacation, I put it in a glas pot and soaked it with a fair amount of water. And after that I just kept giving it a lot more water, than before.. I just thought, I must change my stategy for something to happen. That was the key.. As you can see, small buds slowly appeared! Now it's here, in all it's glory, spreading a lovely scent of vanilla in the whole appartment. A good vanilla scent, not the kind you feel sick from..haha.. That's what I call a 10 year-anniversary!
