    i saw this firsthand! albeit with a beginners orchid. after a year of growing orchids and her first own flower spike, my mom broke it off whilst watering
    she FREAKED out
    all her pride and joy destroyed in an instant

    Because they are the most beautiful flowers ever! I would grow some, but my terrarium is too warm.

    Why do people grow them?
    We grow them because they are the most beautiful and diverse flowers erver imagined. There are over 10,000 orchid species and they drive collectors mad with a desire to try and grow the most beautiful, the rarest, the hardest to suceed with. They are responsible for world wide crazes that led to expiditions which cost people their lives, cost fortunes but also created fortunes for their sponsers.
    Orchids are an addiction both more powerful than and more expensive, for some, than any drug.
    Orchids call to you more than any nep or ping ever could.
    Read some of the history of orchid huntiing, you'll be amazed.
