flowerless orchids- just fake them (until they blossom)

January 9, 2013



There was a time that for every occasion I received an orchid. I love them, so the gift was just perfect each time. They look gorgeous when they blossom. But, then they loose their flowers, sometimes even their leaves and look dead. I used to hide them and wait, sometimes even up to a half a year, to see them blossom again. I've even heard that people just throw them out. Advised by mom I just put artificial orchids into the flowerless ones and wait, wait, and wait till they start blossoming again. The only trick is to get really nice artificial ones, since some just look trashy. I bought mine in Ikea.
