16/365: New Growth

 

16/365: New Growth, originally uploaded by gashuttergirl.

I got this orchid from the Atlanta Botanical Gardens when I attended one of the orchid classes. It lost a leaf almost immediately, so I was worried that I wasn’t treating it right. Today I discovered some new growth on it. It has a new leaf coming out (the triangle in the middle – it almost looks like a thorn on a rose) and 3 new roots (only 2 are visible here). I can’t wait until it flowers. They told us in the class that they probably won’t flower until winter.
