I bought this orchid at Wal-Mart a couple of weekends ago.

I am getting closer to deciding to try growing an orchid or 2. I always think they are hard to grow, but my son has been able to keep some alive, so I'm thinking I could, too.

That one sure is pretty, by the way!

They are so pretty. I don't even try with all the house kitties.

It's very beautiful, but it's still alive? Very nice!

I was at my local Walmart yesterday and noticed them at the checkout by the garden department. They really had a nice variety and they were priced at $10, which is pretty much a steal around here. I see them occasionally at the floral department at Safeway for $20 to $30 and frequently one nursery I go to also has them priced at around $30. However, I stopped by their greenhouse this week and they did not have any in stock so it makes me wonder if Walmart is driving the price down and the nursery maybe quit stocking them.
