I need one of those. I need a white blooming one. Last time I checked, I breathe air and I killed one off. Where can I buy a big one of those online? The one I killed was my husband's that he had kept alive for over 20 years... until he turned its care over to me a few years ago. I killed it in no time flat. Seeing your plant reminded me that I wanted to buy another one.
Gorgeous...!!! Eric, you're wrong... I also breathe air and i (nearly) killed it too... we're in the same boat, TheLorax...ity: this plant turns to mush in hot tropical weather... i still have 2 or 3 surviving stems.. i let them 'piggyback' on the medium of my orchids and they thrive... but when i grow them separately, they die...
I've seen them before at Home Depot and Menards right around Christmas time but not yet this year. I know WalMart has carried them before but I stopped shopping there. I have seen a few pink ones at the grocery store of all places. Hopefully I'll stumble across a white.
It's still sitting on the kitchen counter in a brown paper bag. I need to drill a hole to hang it in the ceiling of a room off the beaten path so he doesn't see it. Fortunately, I think I know where to hang it so that he doesn't see it. We have a couple rooms that he never goes into so it should be safe until I give it to him as a gift.
I'm potting it right now. Figured I'd pot it up in Pro Mix. All the better to kill it in I guess. All it has to do is survive about another week and I can assure that will be the very first gift he gets that night. I don't want nothin to do with that thing!
