What’s new in the genus Lego, you ask?
Thanks for asking. What’s new in this genus is a flowering plant that looks like a moth orchid.
I’m calling it Lego orchida.
It was pretty easy to get this particular plant to bloom, and I’m confident that now that it’s in bloom, it will stay in bloom forever.
While this particular plant will never replace certain real orchids or even those fake orchids that made me look twice and touch them to confirm they weren’t real, it does add a nice touch when displayed with my bouquet of other Lego flowers which resemble Roses, Asters, Daisies, Poppies, Snapdragons, and Lavenders.
Do you remember it from last summer?
It’s still blooming strong, as they say.
What’s next in the genus Lego?
I’ve got my eye on some succulents! (Amazon Link) We’ll see how they “grow” in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, if you also decide to grow some of these Lego plants, I’ll offer this advice.
Don’t start with the bonsai tree. In my opinion, this is the hardest one to grow.
Start with the bouquet or the orchid to give yourself confidence that you indeed have a green thumb.
Never water these plants. They do best without water, though if they get wet, they’ll dry off soon enough. They are also not fussy about light exposure.
Dust them periodically as needed.
Enjoy them for what they provide, a fun activity to watch grow within hours as you put the pieces together.
