So, I am a gigantic klutz. It’s like my body has no sense of where it is in relation to other objects. I am constantly running into things, even in my own apartment: stubbing my toes, slamming my shins into the coffee table, banging my elbows into the bathroom walls. I’ve been known to walk into walls. Recently I chipped a tooth slightly by banging it with a glass when I went to take a drink of water. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that last night when I went into my Orchid Room to get something off of my vanity table, my hand hit the top of the orchid spike that I’m experimenting on with Keiki Grow Paste. Yeah…the one that I updated you on yesterday. Apparently those new growths are pretty delicate, because I knocked part of the growth clear off. DAMMIT!!
I wasn’t really sure what to do, so I slathered some more KGP on the broken end in the hope that it will just sort of regenerate…like when a lizard’s tail is cut off and it grows a new one.
I have no idea what will happen to the growth now. It’s too bad, because that’s the one that was farthest along in its development. So…we’ll see.
Really sorry to hear about your mishap especially when you were so careful to take care of something so delicate.
Thanks…orchids can be surprisingly resilient so hopefully it will bounce back!
OMG that is so sad about your orchid, I would of said alot more than dammit which I’m sure you did lol. I have two orchids one re-bloomed for me and one hasn’t yet. Don’t know anything about the paste, but hope your orchid comes back and stays that way.
LOL…to be honest, I did say more than “dammit,” but I kept it pretty clean in my blog post. 🙂
Thanks and happy growing!
🙁 Kind of reminds me of the time I snapped off 4 developing blooms on our Slc. Kagaribi Dawn :/
Totally…none of us are immune to breakage! I hate it when this stuff happens!!
