    LOL! If it is one thing I am learning from my orchids is patience. (But that doesn't stop me from putting a light on a bud that is about to pop but seems to be taking its own sweet time. hehehe)

    Cheers,

    I absolutely HATE it when they do that! My paph insigne is taking its old sweet time to open, driving me insane in the process. Added to that the cymbidiums I bought for my friends birthdays (which were in march) have still not opened. Cursing at them seems to just have no effect.

    They are obviously deaf, or a few good cuss words would have done the trick, I'm sure!

    At least you folks have buds already.
    Since my collection is mostly autumn/winter bloomers, they are all still growing new pseudobulbs.

    I still have a loooooong wait ahead of me

    Not to mention all the very young seedlings that will not bloom for at least 5 years.
