    Default I have Spring orchids. All of them.

    So, a few of you may recall my bickering about none of my plants wanting to anything but grow last summer/fall etc. As it turns out, I have a giant collection of late Winter-Spring blooming orchids. Every last one of them. Of course, I didn't plan it this way as I'd like to have something in bloom for every season...I just picked out plants that I found the most attractive and they all happen to be Springers. Ah well, it sure is a nice display nevertheless! Anyhow, I guess that solves my "Why the hell won't these ridiculous things bloom?!" issue.

    Hi Kelly

    Sorry to hear that your entire collection is made up of Spring Bloomers. Don't want to add "insult to injury" but from watching the US News, Texas is not going to be seeing Spring weather anytime soon, as you are right now having a blizzard. I wish you a whole lot of patience, they will surely bloom.

    Angela, those issues are in Northern Texas, we are a big state so some of us are having spring like temps.

    Yep, Miller is right! We're not having any kind of snow in my neck of the woods at all. It's definitely a bit Springy.
