    Default Little Stars with nightly fragrance

    My Little Stars just bloomed and boy do we get a very nice nightly fragrance in
    my garden. Anyways, Im very proud of her as I dropped her just as the new
    leaf is coming out... and instead of sulking and throwing a tantrum is gave me
    a spike instead. Here she is....

    Maybe she was afraid you'd drop her again if she didn't bloom

    .....So, the agreement is that I need to drop mine if I want it to go ahead and finally try and bloom? ;-)

    Good growing....scented orchids are the best.

    Yeah, I wish mine were scented. So far they all smell like.....plastic maybe? But they are beautiful and I love them nonetheless

    Oh do post them with they bloom.

    Not a bad theory....

    .....So, the agreement is that I need to drop mine if I want it to go ahead and finally try and bloom? ;-)

    Well I give mine vanda lights.... the funny thing is that after i dropped it, and the new lead broke.
    about 2 weeks later its starting to form some thing, at first i thought that it might be continuing
    to grow the lead, but then as the new form emerges it turned out to be a spike... so maybe the plant
    thought that the new lead has approached maturity and is time to bloom. Nothing beats scented orchids...

    congrats! i see they do well mounted.
    Well see what happens to my bulbo


    Thanks all glad you liked it...
