I also get annoyed with flowering plants that are in full bloom when you get them and then never seem to flower again. How long do you keep them? Two years, three, even four in the vain hope that they will suddenly delight you with their original glory?
I have a couple such plants - orchids to be precise. I don't know much about orchids but I do think they seem to like bathrooms as that seems to be where most people keep theirs. I have had one particular orchid for very many years now and I am beginning to work out that it seems to flower every other year. And this year I am in luck. What a stunning display it has put on for me. There are three stems heaving with flowers and it delights me every time I go into the bathroom.
