In our very mild Florida winter, now is the time to severly prune roses. Doing this will force them to go dormant for a short time and let them rebuild their gusto for a beautiful spring bloom.

I have always failed miserably with orchids. I love to garden and have huge gardens that flourish. Yet, put me next to an orchid (or Bonsai Tree) and it will die.

That is sad Susan :( Maybe you are overwatering them? They don't take much...2-3 cubes of ice per WEEK when they are not blooming.

themodernpatina... They are called Vanilla planifolia Orchid -- Here is a link with more info and link to amazon store with them... http://anestforallseasons.blogspot.com/2011/12/making-homemade-vanilla-extract.html
