you havent seen my orchids. my mini Catts are growing on a shelf and MAYBE get watered every other week. actually you would be surprised how much stress some orchids can take. i have an Oncidium that is ofically labeled as my most abused plant that gets watered twice a month if its lucky and never fertilized. its growing like a weed and flowering every 3 or 4 months. please remember that i live in a desert and use a "humidity tent" for growing my Nepenthes, the average humidity in my house is maybe 40% on the high end. yet my one mini Catt is growing like a weed and growing out of its pot in these harsh conditions. dont under estimate these plants.
