So I received an SLC Tutankamen Pop joga (cattleya) orchid a couple weeks ago and it had 3 buds on it and I was so excited! Okay, so I made sure it had water when it arrived. It got half shade/half sun... temps were good. Only watered it once... oh how exciting one the buds starts to bloom! Kick ass... at that point the other two buds start going all droop and deadish on me... Friday night they fell off. Okay, still one blooming. Ummm, sometime Sunday before the bloom ever even completely opened it just went droop and fell off. WTF!?!?!?!
So now I wander about my house in the dark singing Marilyn Manson at my plant "the minute that it's born, it begins to die!!!!!!!!!" That's not helping, either.
