Just Add Ice

The apt. we are in comes complete with it's own live plant. This Orchid sits in a a north facing window at the top of the stairs. My instructions are to put seven ice cubes in the top of the pot every Monday. So far it has worked.. Can't help but wonder if I count wrong and put six or eight......or wait until Tuesday....

I love the internet (you can look up anything). I guess there really is a "just add ice orchid". !

  1. Well it certainly seems to be working - the orchid is magnificent, must try that myself - 7 ice cubes every Monday - I've got that.

  2. I keep losing my comments this morning; perhaps the computer voodoo is telling me something?

    Since I have killed every orchid I have owned, I wouldn't deviate one bit from the instructions.

  3. I am so going to buy an orchid and try this Jamey, i love them but don't have much luck..this is definitely worth a try. Your orchid is magnificent!

  4. one of my blogger pals in new jersey featured one this winter, too.

  5. I have never heard about that treatment, but it works so to see. The orchid looks beautiful.
