Saturday, March 14
We are often gifted with a phalaenopsis orchid for special occasions. It blooms a while, it loses its flowers, and the leaves become droopy or brown. Don’t give up.
Bring your phalaenopsis to the library. We will replant it in orchid bark.
Claudia E. Heyer will share her knowledge about these lovely plants with you so that you can grow a healthy, flowering phalaenopsis for years to come.
