    Default It's Noid Season!!!

    I have no explanation why my cultural environment would bring four noids (a cymbid. a dend. an oncid and a phal.) a milt. "Robert Jackson", a cymbid. "Mini-Green" , and a cycnodes "Wine Delight" to spike in the same week. If I can keep another Oncid, noid and the Paph. Rasin Pie x Macarb in bloom I'll have a third of my chids in bloom at once. I only have 30.

    I can understand why I am excited by a few little green (purple red in the phals case) twiggy things in my sun room that portend colors and scents to delight the senses, but wouldn't you guys rather wait to see the blooms? I'll be happy to suck up a little bandwidth If you really want to see them.

    OK. I'll get the camera out tonight.

    And I have no idea what I did right, Bench 72.

    If I did the file thing correctly, the first pic should be Cycnodes Wine Delight 'Jem' . Just above the lowest leaf on the right you can see a pregnant bulge. When you look from the side you can just see the spike tip splitting the leaf sheath.

    The second pic is Cymbidium 'Mini-Green'. It was the plant that earlier in the summer had scale, spider mite, and sun burn but with the help of the kind folks in this forum has lived to please another day.

    Pic three is the Milt. Robert Jackson 'Jambalaya' spike. The plant isn't doing very well. This may be a last gasp for survival bloom attempt.

    Pic four is one of the four spikes on the Oncidium Noid .

    Pic one is the Cymbid. Noid spike.

    Pic two is the Dend. Noid spike.

    Pic three is the two Phal. Noid spikes. I think this may be a variety of "Leopard Prince". I googled the image and that's as close as I can come to ID ing it. It was just in bloom last May.

    Pic four is some eye candy for your perserverence in looking at the other boring pics and reading my blather. It's a Cymbidium Wonderland. The pic doesn't do the colors justice and until there is "SMELL-O-VISION" I can't transmit its subtle, satisfying, citrus scent (how's that for aliteration?)
