Orchid

I consider my orchid a friend. It actually has a way of telling me if it is upset. When I first bought it had no flowers and a flower stem. The top node it growing. I am dieting to know if it is a hormone buildup which grows a new orchid. Or a new flower.

I use aquarium water to grow mine. My room is so humid that roots are growing in mid air.

You know they are classified as air root plants? Doesn't matter if your room is humid or not

But they get things like water from air and prefer it. They need a humid envirement for there otos to work. That is how the pots work.

If you look up the orchid, you will find they are epipytes, that means they have a non-parasitic relationship with trees and other plants. That's why they have air roots
