red ribbon at local orchid show – crazy plant lady

It’s no secret that I’m a complete plant nerd. I belong to the Ann Arbor Orchid Society and this past weekend was their show and sale. I put one of my plants in the group display and am totally geeked to have won a 2nd place ribbon!

Last year was hard on me and also on my plants. I did the best I could with them but after the third round of chemo? It became obvious that I was going to loose part of my collection because I couldn’t keep up anymore. That red ribbon is especially triumphant because my Leptotes is one of the plants that made it through my neglect – and with flying colors!

I get a lot of comments along the lines of “how do I grow orchids?”. And I want to answer but it’s a huge topic and thought it might be fun if we did some Crazy Plant Lady Q&A posts. Leave a comment on this post with specific questions about growing orchids and I’ll work on a post to answer them. Sound good? Okay! Let’s hear those questions! 🙂

    Congrats! I am a benign neglect kinda gardener. Are orchids for me? Also, congrats on overcoming.

    Congratulations! I love seeing that ribbon on your beautiful orchid. It means so much more than what anyone at the flower show would have known. I’ve been cheering you on along the way and I’m just really excited to see this “visual” representing that you are a champion in so many ways!
