Ive been terribly lazy so far since my son was born. I usually water once a day and fertilise once every week rotating between a growth and flowering fertiliser.

    Gavin, give more sun light and keep the plants relatively dry usually will initiate the buds, for the pink color depend on your luck sometimes it will work for you. I got another clone from Gunung Stong ( pink color very pretty) only blooming once a year so frustrated and give to my friend. How old your son right now I know you are very busy never mine focus on him that is your top priority and than your orchids.

    I will take your advice..currently my farmeri are in a slightly shaded area receiving only morning sun, will adjust accordingly. My son is now 5 months old! He is a cheeky little fella and after playing with him i have no time for my orchids!

    Gorgeous flowers....

    Also, Gavin, you'll be amazed at how fast your time with a little one goes by. I remember my baby...who is now almost 30 (how did that happen?) and just gave me a little grandson about 4 months ago. How fun! I'm glad you're still enjoying your little one.

    This is a great looking orchid! And to think it blooms that many times a year! Awesome!
