    Default Merry Green 'Taida' in bloom again



    Heavy, waxy petals and sepals, shockingly vibrant lip, light citrus scent when in sun. Really reliable plant! (didn't have time to take a new picture before bringing her into work, but blooms exactly like last year - 2 on a stem)

    the colour combo sure is awesome! and you're excused with the haste of moving this plant to work... after all, we all want to be able to see our 'chids all the time when they are at their best! I've just moved all my flowering plants into the study where i spend most of my time

    She has to be repotted after she finishes blooming, would you like a division?

    Very nice - I love the waxy petals.

    You're brave bringing them into work - everytime I bring one in to work it seems like people feel the need to touch them until they wilt early! I should smack them next time? No?

    Actually, most people that come into my office assume that the orchids are fake! After I tell them they are real, they look more closely and sometimes take a sniff. I encourage people to touch (gently) the leaves and p-bulbs so they can understand more about the plants. I usually swith out plants after 2 weeks because office environment has poor light and practically no humidity.

    Well,
    If you think you can cut off a piece without setting the plant back, then I would like to have a piece. If not, it might be better just keep the plant as is. They bloom and grow better like that.
    BTW, lot people I know when they look at green catts, they think the blooms are fake until you tell them and they are all shocked! Hehehhe!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    What's wrong with that? They are the naive/clueless ones. Hehehehe! They are whom I call 'the non-believers'. They just don't believe things that pretty could be real!
