    Default The first of the season (nobile type hybrids)

    This one is D.Sachi x Wave King. I don't usually have them in flower quite as early as this - I would prefer say 1,2,3 months later - for the sake of the Spring Shows, but the flowering time really depends on when I bring them in from their rest, and this year we had an early onset of cold weather, so naturally I had to bring them in early, etc etc...

    Nobile dendrobes are so gorgeous. Been admiring them since the early 60s . Pity we can't grow them here in the lowlands.

    No - you must have the possibility of a temperature drop - it is not necessary to go mad, like some of my orchid friends in Scotland who tell me the temperature in the garden has been down to minus 15 C, so that they have brought all the orchids into the house, to take over the sitting room... but I expect they will be complaining that in the house it was too warm, and their dendrobe's haven't flowered. This is known as " you can't win"....

    However, since we have been told that world energy prices are on the up and up, and our gas ( for heating the house and greenhouse) price is to go up by 15% as from tomorrow , I think I'd settle for not being able to grow nobile dendrobes and no gas bill, if I did have the choice.

    Default latest display in my hall

    My wife said ( after I had taken the pic above)"are you taking that plant to the greenhouse ? Can't we have it in the house ?" So I changed the hall display, put another couple of plants with it, into the usual basket - forgot to hide the label - must go and move it, my wife thinks that labels should be invisible...so here it is ( the basket).
    The "aluminium plant" -the one on the lft with the green and white leaves, if you don't know it - I don't know/have forgotten its name - saw it growing in the jungle once - Costa Rica ? Venezuela ? Can't recall for sure - grows beautifully in an orchid house. I once had it growing in the soil floor of a greenhouse, and had a ring main of water with spray jets and timers , for humidity, and these plants being watered about every hour or two in the summer grew so fast we used to joke about takling a panga into the greenhouse to cut a path through...

    That is a very nice dendrob. Mine is just giving out keikis after keikis..luckily even the plant looks nice with that thick, shiny leaves. Thanks for sharing Geoff.

    It's gorgeous, here's one that I love but unfortunately where I am in temperature is quite high, so not suitable for flower

    But think of all the lovely things you can flower - which I can't.

    Old English proverb - the grass is always greener on the other side of the street.
