I only bring it up after taking a stroll through the ELLE halls and seeing desk after desk cluttered with once-regal white orchids in varying states of decay, slowly meeting their demise under the unflattering, and certainly inhospitable climate born of fluorescent lighting and 68-degree closed-circulation air.Don’t get me wrong , orchids are beautiful—I love them. But they’re Daphne-Guinness-level fragile, in need of elaborate care for mere survival. (Were it that they canada goose sale mens , too, could exist on Guinness’ potent combo of Ensure and Red Bull.) My mom, an orchid lover who owns at least ten, follows a strict spritzing schedule and has to special-order their (expensive) food. Some experts even recommend talking to them to stimulate growth. And before all of that, I’m pretty sure you’re supposed to transfer the orchid from the glass cube in which it’s delivered into a big, comfy terra cotta urn—shit’s no joke!As we editors watch the blooms wither and fall off, the waxy, wide leaves becoming spotted (stricken with some sort of plant disease, PERHAPS?), it serves as a searing reminder of our irresponsibility—we can’t take care of a goddamn thing, can we?

Make it a fashion thing. Or, we get DVF to plant them on the Highline right outside her Meatpacking studio? They may not be indigenous species like the rest of the flora there, but a) they’d be recycled and b) off my desk, which would be a gift to both editors and the earth, right?
