    Red face Otaara Hwa Yuan Bay 'She Shu'

    Otr Hwa Yuan Bay 'She Shu' is such a sensitive plant that it has been more than a year since it last bloomed. Buds blasting from the slightest weather change and attacks by thrips meant a whole year without any blooms. This time after treatment for thrips and keeping it away from the rains, I have finally been rewarded with 3 blooms.

    BTW not sure whehter it is still an Otaara - what with all the name changes.

    Lovely, Yew Sung. It looks like something you would post. When I saw the photo on the homepage I knew it was yours.

    Damn those thrips! We haven't had enough rain to wash them away lately. I was spraying yesterday morning at 5:00 am before leaving for work.

    We've got plenty of rain and that makes the thrips burrow even deeper into the buds. Time to spray again.

    Holy floofage, Batman! Glad it finally graced you with blooms again. (Can be incredibly frustrating when you have an orchid that is a diva.)
