I had a place ready for them. The only room without a heat vent near the window...is our laundry room- mud room. I have shelves by the window where I put a tray with pebbles and water for humidity. I told the Orchids that they were home now. I didn't do anything but give a couple of them a drink of water. They say not to repot them for maybe even a year...they like crowded roots. I guess that I pampered my first Orchid so much that it died from over care. I think that plants are kind of like raising children...if you have one child...you dote on it and watch everything that child does so closely. Whereas if you have a bunch...you tend to spread out your love and care and not focus quite so much on each one. I'm hoping this is the way it will be with me and Orchids...I'm naturally a nurturer...I'll have to keep my hands off that watering can and limit my watering to once every 7 to 10 days. I remember my Mom with her gold fish, "Goldy" Everytime Mom walked by...Goldy would wag her tail and swim to the top of the fish tank. Mom would throw in a pinch of food. Goldy grew so fat that she had trouble swimming to the top and died of too much "love." I'll keep this story in mind everytime I do my laundry and look to the left at my new babies. Oh, Lord....just help me ignore them a little.
