We decided to try orchids. Have always been rather nervous about growing them but saw this lovely phalaenopsis orchid & thought what the heck. It looked very healthy with such beautiful flowers. The instructions on the care tag were very thorough & easy to follow which gives me more confidence. The flowers are still looking good more that four weeks since we bought it with the flowers already in full bloom. The really big hurdle will be see if I can get it to survive & flower next year.
