You know how I love flowers. A friend of mine has asked me to water his flowers while he’s on vacation over Easter. Of course I was happy to help and said yes, but the trouble is that he has very many flowers, and some of them are really advanced. He has one orchid, a bonsai tree and even a cocoa plant. It must have taken 20 minutes for him to explain how every flower has a specific watering need. Some need watering once every three days, while some need to be watered three times a day. And the orchid needs to be soaked in water, so I have to get a bucket, fill it with water and sink the orchid into it. I’ve been instructed to let it soak for “around” 23 minutes, so I have to stay there and watch the flower as it was a pie in the oven. I’m still not sure if my friend seriously treats his flowers this well himself, or if he is pulling my leg.
I try to follow his instructions as well as I can, but it seems that so much can go wrong that these days I’m constantly worried about those flowers.
