    Default New Growth on dendrobium and vanda orchids

    Usually in the heat of summer I don't see too much growth on some plants. But since our move they all seem to like the new growing area as I have several new spikes in the last week. If I can figure out how to keep the spiders out of them i'll have more. They leave black stuff at the place where the plants bud out and it seems to stop them from budding or spiking. Does anyone know how to stop this?? They are white spiders that run up my arm if I pick the plant up. It's not good for a gimp like me to be doing the "freak out" dance when they go running up my arm either. lol
    ...this will take a couple posts for all the pics. I had fun running around snapping pics. The first pic...the den with two little ones...that poor thing had no potting stuff for a couple weeks after the move, but the roots just keep growing like crazy. When I put the new stuff in and tied it in, these popped up.

    The top part of this den that is so nice is what has grown just since we moved, and the spike started a few days after it got sat up there. It's a copy of my big new den called 'candy stripe'...

    I thought this den was dead until these popped up a couple days ago.

    This big Vanda has several keikei's on it. They hadn't been growing at the other house, but they are going to town now!

    This first is a mini catt I purchased about six months ago. It was growing fine at the other home, but not developing sheaths like it is now.

    This mini catt was repotted 5-6 months ago and had begun several new leads that are now developing sheaths.

    The large carniverous plant stand, is helping the new den growth to stay upright. It is so heavy the plant kept falling over. You can tell the new growth, from it's time on the new front porch as it is so green and lovely, with none of the sunspots from the extreme sun on the side of the old house.

    This is a new plant that needs repotting. It is Ctsm. Donna Wise 'Amber' crossed with Ctsm. Donna Wise 'Kathleen'. I look forward to seeing it bloom someday.

    This is a couple of the pieces from a Maxillaria Tenufolia I split a few months ago. They are finally beginning to thrive and grow new sections.

    I haven't been around the last little bit...I hope to be able to spend a little more time coming up. I'm almost done with the important details and can spend a little more time now with my orchids. I've sure missed this website...and it's good to be back. : 0) I'll update the ones in spike when they bloom...

    Wow Connie, your plants are thanking you again and again for their lovely new home! That was such a surge of growth of new growths and spikes- so great to see in all the photos you took. Can't believe that dendrobium with fat healthy spikes coming out every which way from the top of it. I couldn't see the spike on the schomburgkia too well, but the plant itself looked lovely and healthy...

    I'm waiting for my zygo "Blue Bird" to bloom, and seeing the spike on yours makes me so excited. Your catasetum is thriving- all the catts and the other guys. It just proves the truth of the quote on Yew's posts:
    Orchids are very eloquent.They tell their master by their appearance , how they are treated.

    Don't you have a tree with a long horizontal limb that you are/were planning to turn into an orchid haven. We want to see pictures when that is completed also.

    Thanks for taking all those pictures to show us - and for sharing your excitement with us.

    I hadn't had the time to mess with the limb yet. Also; it's at the back of the yard and i'm not sure yet how i'd water them back there. The other factor...my husband wants to cut it down. lol

    Great growing Connie. You have a full time project there, what with the new house and all your chids demanding your attention. But it will pay off in the end, as you well know.

    I am looking forward to being close to being done. But now we are beginning the "handicapped equiping" part. lol The next two months I still have tons of paperwork and construction. It's a wonder I am having nap attacks! lol
