    CUTE! Mine are about a month from flowering, but there are HUNDREDS of little spike-buds on the tips of the canes!

    Wow, the orchid looks so healthy! I like the wood basket (pot holder) it is in too. Very nice!

    cheers,

    That first picture of the salmon coloured kingianum ... I assume you had the light value setting on the wrong reading somewhere, the flowers are not really that colour, surely ?
