I never thought that I could resuscitate a very fragile orchid. I knew that this plant had to be taken cared like a baby, lol!! Well I tried. Before I come up with saving rain water just for the orchid I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice two or three weeks. Then I realized that rain helps any plants grow fast and my rain saving was born. Now I see the fruit of my labor hehe I have plenty of budding orchids on two stems. I am so happy!!
