This week, I'm sharing with you a new favorite: the orchid cactus. I bought this lovely botanical a few weeks ago and ever since then, it has proven to be the perfect plant for this brightly lit room. Its flattened, scallop-edged leaves offer interesting shapes as they gently cascade over the pot making them great for hanging planters as well. Being part of the cacti family, watering requirements are less then for your usual orchid variety, but they do like a soil mixture that drains well but retains a bit of moisture. Your standard potting mix would work great. With bright indirect light, the flowers will bloom off the edges of the leaves creating a pop of color in the room.
Do you have a favorite botanical? If so, do share.
