I was itching for a bit of sunshine indoors, so I picked up these beautiful sunflowers the other day at the market.
I love orchids, but they don't tend to love me...so the fact that this beauty still has blooms on it is quite amazing. Now, don't get me wrong...I can keep the actual plant alive, I can just never keep the blooms for long and have NEVER been able to get one to rebloom. This one is actually two plants placed together in the larger container. I have always had trouble knowing how much water they need. Well, the directions this one came with (from Trader Joes) said a couple ice cubes, once a week (so in this case, 4, since there are two plants)...I can do that!!! So far so good. And, at $21, hubby's exact words, "even if it only blooms for a month, it is still cheaper than me buying flowers every week!" LOL Thanks honey.
