I recently propagated some cuttings from Pepper because she was getting leggy and her leaves are heavy which made her droopy. She was a bonus plant from a dead orchid I bought off the clearance shelf .

I love this plant! It was my first, and is constantly pushing out new growth! It’s easy to propagate as well, and beautiful when getting enough sunlight.
