My orchids still look great, but I'm exhausted. They have more needs than the 4 kids I've raised. Providing good light but no direct sun, moisture but not too much or too little, special bark planting mix, special pots that drain from the sides and bottom, and repotting because of root rot, has all been a lot of work. So I'll enjoy them until they show signs of dying, then I'll let them go. I still love them, but propagating them won't become a hobby. I need hobbies that aren't so much work!
