I have found an equally long lasting alternative to my faux flowers. A friend gave me an orchid (my first ever) about 2 years ago. It stayed in bloom for months after she gave it to me.
It also, somewhat shockingly, bloomed again with very little aid from me. All I had to do was:
- trim off the stalks when all the blooms dropped off
- keep it moist but not waterlogged
- Add some orchid food when you remember
That was it. Happy Blooming!!
