Ascocentrum Miniatum in bloom since the past 1 month. It was slightly yellowish when it first bloomed, it has more orange to it now..
nice! I did not know they get orange
Gosh - that is beautiful! Love the ORANGE!!
Very beautiful Satish, I like the dainty little flowers and fiery colour. I've always like this orchid but can't grow them here on a window sill! Will just admire yours...
Very pretty! Lovely color!
Beautiful! Love orange. Great job! Your orchid really makes me wish I lived in a climate where I could grow outdoors or had a greenhouse. Bill
Thanks, folks! I got this plant in summer (April) and it spiked when I let it sit in the monsoon rains one day. I still find it challenging to get it to root proliferously. I put some spanish moss on its roots as I read in one of the posts here that spanish moss helps retain humidity better. I'm hoping this works and added small strands of spanish moss to all my vandaceous plants. Hope that works, especially because the humidity here is now plummeting to 30s after the nice monsoon showers.
Lovely flowers ! For your humidity problem, I would suggest that you group all your plants and find a way to hang them with other plants like ferns, bromeliads etc below the. This creates a microsphere around the plants with higher humidity.
