    I know the feeling Kelly. I have 7 plants in bloom , which sounds like an ok number if you don't take into account that I have are around 300 orchids in my collection.

    Actually, you need to click on the film strip next to the insert image icon and past the url into that pop-up window. Otherwise you just get a link and a moderator or admin will have to edit your post to make your video show up.

    cheers,

    As seen here jai star, it's certainly nice to have this much in bloom or bud. It just shows how happy your orchids are. I am also an expert at dabbing water off Phalaenopsis and other crowns. AL

    Thanks AL wow i've been called an expert today im so happy. Actually i got a lot of bud blast a few weeks ago due to unknown reasons and i was so scared i would lose the whole lot. They are such tempermental things. I mostly grow Phals because I have found them to be the most rewarding and beautiful.
