Well, this is a surprising spring update for you.
About a week ago it sent up two shoots that I had assumed were just roots (because all my orchid learnings over the last however long totally involved the way roots grow out around the top of your container, too, eventually), BUT --
But, oh my goddess, totally not a root!
It looks like I'm about to have orchid flowers, again, as there are tiny baby buds sprouting on a new stalk (after my being so sure I'd utterly killed to brown and snapping the first one). But look! It's green! And they are tiny! But totally there! It looks like my new house (in six days) is going to have a blooming orchid in it sometime in the coming weeks.
Every time I look at it, I send a smile and love your way.
