...that I can keep a plant alive:

Do you see that? It's a new little leaf growing out of my orchid!

My hubby is the plant caregiver in our house. I'm bad at remembering to water them. I actually had an orchid a few years ago and killed it. But my mother-in-law gave me this orchid for Christmas and I was determined to keep it alive.

My mom has a beautiful orchid, so I asked her for some tips. It turns out you only have to water it once a week! Perfect for me! But when my blossoms fell off, I was convinced that it would end up dying and I would never get it to blossom again. It hasn't blossomed again yet, but when I saw this new little leaf growing, I was SO excited!

I think I have the exact same orchid set up haha. Mine said to put 3 ice cubes in it once a week. That's the exact kind of flower I need and it's still blooming!
