    Default Paraphalaenopsis labukensis

    This May will be 8 years since I purchased this orchid, I just refuse to get rid of orchids that have not bloomed in hopes that it will get around to blooming for me before I kick the bucket, which I hope is not any time soon as I have more I am waiting on to bloom for the first time. The longest terete-leaf on this is 3 feet long.

    Very nice flowers Jack! I have quite a few that have never flowered. Once in a while I'll think about getting rid of one but then I decide, well you've waited this long...

    I'm a keeper of orchids too! This year a whole bunch of them suddenly decided to bloom, great fun.

    Yours is lovely, I'm glad you didn't give up on it, now we all get to enjoy it too!

    I agree, after watering, fertilizing etc. for so long you can not give up!

    I was beginning to wonder if they would ever bloom, but you are right worth the wait!
