    Cool Brassavola nodosa fully bloomed

    Every spike has flowers in bloom now...and there are a total of 57 flowers (with roughly six still in the process of opening), on 9 spikes. For me, I get happy when a plant gives me a single spike or one or two flowers...this is like opening a gift at Christmas. Every time I see it I am like a kid...

    OMG Connie, that is a great blooming! Congratulations! I just got myself one and I am not sure how to grow it so far, so I'll just lay back and enjoy yours

    Have a great weekend!

    Just beautiful Connie! Thanks for posing with it too! I never really thought of them taking up that amount of space...of course mine never made it to maturity. It did manage two flowers. I thought they had a nice fragrance. Brit found it too medicinal. I would LOVE a chance to smell yours!

    Well al I can say is I'm glad Santa came early this year to you Connie. My 'Orchid' Santa Claus probably won't be coming this year. I believe the elves are on strike or the Reindeer refuse to fly south until the FAA gives clearance to a new flight pattern for them and the sleigh. The reindeer also complain that Santa has gained a little to much weight, so there asking people to forgo the milk and cookies in the future. All kidding aside these spikes are gorgeous something to be excited about!
