Just ignore her if she plays you up she will become bored of her sulk and give you some new blooms as she seeks your attention again. Orkie is having a good run at the moment and is still behaving, we shall have to see if Christmas unsettles her. They would be doomed without those ugly roots. Oh no! and I've just been reading that they actually have guinea pig farms "they're considered a delicacy and are usually cooked whole, often grilled, sometimes deep fried" <---TMI and somehow I dont think we will be adding them to our SC Cafe menu Ooooo! she looks so very cute and healthy too, I love the colour of her leaves, they're not pure white are they, a sort of Ivory colour I think. Thank you for showing us Michelle, she is gorgeous I suppose Christmas isn't the ideal time to buy plants as they tend to produce and pack them in bulk, I am still going to buy one though probably this week. I wish we had the Thanksgiving over here too, its such a worthy day. Do you have the Christmas Markets over in the US? we usually visit at least one of these in the run up to Christmas, they're full of festive food, drink, gifts and music, they have a wonderful atmosphere.
