I purchased a Blc. Laura Bush ‘First Lady’ from EBay (Lucky Girl Orchids — pupsi_dog) and really screwed it up. It was in bud, and I did not wait for the blooms, but repotted immediately. The blooms came (2 of them), but lasted only a couple of days. Since the plant was poorly planted, I decided to divide it, and ended up with two plants.
Unfortunately, they both did poorly. I finally decided to throw one half out, and kept the other half in the west-facing window, knowing it was doomed. I finally decided to throw out the second half (the back bulbs of the division), but noticed that this division had decided to grow two new roots. I continued to water it, and now have a new lead coming. I hope it will bloom again, and not be stressed this time.
