My mum bought me this gorgeous orchid.  I have no experience of them so any tips gratefully received.  Can you tell what sort of orchid it is?

    It's one of these.

    Super easy. Even I can keep them alive. The best thing you can do is try not to fuss over it.image

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    Give it a north facing window, out of direct sunlight. Stand it in rainwater with a few drops of orchid fertliser once a week,for an hour. Let it drain and repeat a week later. When the flowers die off, cut the dead spike to a node on the flower stem, it will then reshoot from the cut and flower again.

  • Thank you both. I'll do my best!
