    Normally I have to bring my orchids in for the winter so they get a lot less water than normal, but when I can get them out for a day or two they get a shower. I can't wait for the day I can have a space for a greenhouse so the orchids won't suffer over the winter months from lack of light and better temp control.

    I like the pendant style of the inflourescences
    me too!

    That little nikon 5700 has been pretty good to me. I am very close to finally getting that D300 I've wanted and am really excited! The only thing I will miss about the 5700 is the swivel lcd screen.

    Shannara,
    what a beautiful plant! Congratulations!
    My den. aggregatum was going to bloom, too. Unfortunately, somebody ate a young spike ... have no clue what a creature - lizzard probably... My orchids live 24\7 outside on my patio, and sometimes I have problem with critters. Once somebody damaged (bit) new bulbs on b.fletcherianum.
    Anyway, hope my plant will have better luck next blooming season!

    Oh no...I hate it when you almost have a bloom spike open and something happens to it. I have my plants outside on a covered patio area too. Luckily nothing seems interested in eating them...yet!
