I purchased a couple sets of bulbs from overseas awhile back. After receiving them, I did my research and potted them up. It's been tough watering empty pots, but apparently I did it right cuz they are growing! Both pots now have two growths coming up! (....doing my happy dance) I really didn't think I'd get them to grow...just imagine if they actually bloom someday.
Here's what the little things look like so far...the one with the white plant marker is the duck orchid. And as you can see from the size of everything around them, so far they are still pretty tiny.
I'll update this as they grow...or do something interesting. One is called the duck orchid (pectelis something) and the other is a habenaria mitrochondi. I can't remember and I'm too lazy to check my notes. lol
Keep us posted
that's very COOL! I purchased a few cypripediums for my garden last winter and I planted them outside they are so BEAUTIFUL!
Cyps? Cool! Where are they from?
That is just too cool. How exciting to actually see something growing!! Congrats!!!
Great work, Connie! DO keep us posted on their progress. I think it would be really neat to see from this stage all the way through to blooming stage - a record of development I suppose.
Best of luck with them.
Good job Connie, Looks like you figured out what makes them happy!
Not to highjack your thread or anything but I started growing a Habenaria (Radiata) as well and so far so good,
except that I just discovered that my one of my cat thinks it's cat-grass and is eating it !!!!
(as you can see on the picture)
wow this is going to be great, good job connie , youve got a green thumb, congratiolation!
