I don't know since when I love fresh flowers. I have been liking flowers since before but tend to turn into fresh flowers in these few months. I chose orchid as I knew it will last for a while. I bought this in December, and now February 2015 this orchid is still there. I just changed the location and make sure to water it once a week with 1/4 cup of water. I bought it fresh at Gwanjang market after my cotton hunting activity. I will definitely buy more after this knowing that will last for at least 3months. It is a good hobby for winter season as I could not do anything at my backyard.hehe..
