    Yep same plants same spikes, I took the least advanced photo back in May. It does seem to be taking longer than I remember when It would spike in the past. The flowers at the base of the spike are starting to emerge so hopefully not much longer.

    Oncidium Sharry Baby is a wonderful orchid that just grows and grows. Congratulations. Now - no more snapping off the spike tips.

    cheers,

    Do you guys have really mild winters, Bruce? Or does the greenhouse stay warm enough in the winter? I may invest in a small one if it stays warm enough.

    It gets pretty cold here. I keep the greenhouse at 55 degrees during the winter.

    miller, i would leave it outside until in full bloom, or you could blast a lot of buds from temp and light change. mine (only one, but very large spike) is a little ahead of yours, but i have been waiting since april.... taking forever, but maybe in the next week or so i will have open flowers. cannot wait unitl mine gets that size!
