This was sitting, in a pot, in an empty spot in a planter outside the front door this morning. Imagine my surprise. There were two tags attached. One was a thank you card, explaining the reason for the gift. The second was a list of instructions. The last said,
"After the spike has lost all its flowers, cut under 3 cm below the first bloom, a new branch may be emerged to re-bloom, place near a south window. 18-25degreesC different and bloom between 17-20degreesC."
The temperature part confuses me. This is my first orchid. Am I allowed to remove the twist-ties?
