I love Orchids but keeping one alive is serious business.

The struggle is real.  A potential trip to Hawaii got me thinking more and more about these lovelies. Want to experience their beauty with less anxiety?  Try my easy fix:


Orchid Aquarium

1. Using a package of orchids from your local bodega, gently separate the stems and get to work. I selected a classic purple orchid hue, but many bodegas carry a wide variety- I had a selection of vibrant yellow ones in my hand many times!

2. Trim  stems down to almost the height of your cylindrical vase . Use the bigger blossoms but don't forget to add some buds as they will bloom over time.

3. Add water to vase - 7/8  full.

4. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your beautiful Orchid Aquarium!
