Before leaving on our long vacation last month, I was concerned about my beautiful phalaenopsis orchids that I have on my kitchen counter.
They would need to be watered several times during the time we were gone and I didn't feel comfortable with asking our neighbor girls to water them .....they were taking care of our yard and our tomato plants, but I wasn't sure they would handle my precious orchids properly.

So we got these watering bulbs that I'm sure you've seen advertised over the last few years.
I wasn't sure that they would work well enough, but when we returned home my orchids were fine and many new blossoms had opened.

So my orchids have remained in good condition and I will have many weeks of enjoyment looking at them.....in previous years some of my spikes have lasted FIVE months.
