My thumbs are anything but green. I am struggling to keep my bamboo plant alive. I thought growing plants was not in the cards for me since I travel often and don’t always remember to water my plants. Sam Lemheney, designer of the 183rd Philadelphia Flower Show, suggests I try orchids. He included several different varieties in the Hawaiian themed flower show. Sam refers to orchids as the gift that keeps on giving because they can return year after year, with very little fuss. I love the vibrant colors. He offered some tips for keeping them healthy and alive.
