    They are beautiful I love chantilly lace does it have any fragrance? Doesn't it make you feel like you have performed a miracle when you get a bare root or rootless orchid to bloom?
    Good Growing, Cin

    Your plants are very happy looking, and a wish mine would bloom like yours... I have several minis, which are supposed to be blooming size and so far no flowers. The standard cats flower and the minis don't. I started fertilizing little more this spring hoping this will improve things. I keep my fingers crossed. Thank you for sharing yours. Nice photos too!
