Orchids

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I buy them whenever I can, and they are surprisingly easy to keep alive.
The ones I had all fucking died even though I tried taking care of them.
Had a pot of various dormant plants I'd bundled together, doing nothing for months other than dying. Put them on the opposite side of the property where they got afternoon sun and rainwater, new shoots on all plants in 3 days.

I think these are the exact reasons I do so well with them. Don't over water them? Leave them sitting for months? I'm good at that. :thumb:

I dont grow stuff that you cannot eat, but as for these flowers , they are easy to look after. One half bottle of water has now lasted over two years and just in case,,, I have a spare bottle of water on hand. I think the Botanical name is PolyPlastic, or something.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
