    Default Some more orchid plants coming into bloom!

    Now that the heavy rain here in Manila has temporarily stopped and the sun is shining strongly and the temperature is getting up .... some of my plants are coming into bloom.

    These are assorted orchid plants so I'm posting hem here all in one place for convenience.

    My dendrobium in bloom (I forgot to write down the name but it is on the tag tied to the pot). Photo taken on my 2nd floor balcony roof deck - the "laundry" area doubling as my extension grow area aside from my main grow area on the ground floor.

    Closer view of my Ports .... I couldn't get to focus my iPhone camera clearly 'coz the sunlight is very bright from the roof so the colors don't appear very vibrant.

    My Paph (once again ... forgot to copy the name before coming to the computer shop where I am posting these photos ... the name is on the tag in the pot - you can see the tip of the tag barely sticking out of the pot on the side)

    hmm, ok, jojo... u can't show us a pretty paph like that and not give us a name!!! I see a new bud coming up so I will expect the name when that flower is posted. You have to make it easier for us to add plants to the wish list

    Yes randy that's just one of the paphs I was telling you about. I hope there will still be some left over when you plan to visit the garden flea market in july.

    Actually there are three of them - the other two are dark in color - one is very dark red/maroon and the other is a lighter red/maroon. Unfortuantely they are still in bud and haven't opened yet.

    The phal is also at the "tiangge" from my vendor-friend.

    Don't worry guys, I'll update you on the name tags. It's just that I keep on forgetting.

    Most of the plants are hanging a bit high so 'll have to take a ladder and copy the names of tags. When I took the photos I was actually on top of the ladder as I was taking the photos! LOL!
