    Default Trichovanda and Rhynchostylis gigantea

    Hi everyone! Just thought I'd share some orchid photos!

    The large one is a Trichovanda that I purchased in bloom but have yet to get to re-bloom. Not sure what I'm doing wrong

    The other is a recently acquired bag baby from Lowe's. Rhynchostylis gigantea. It was potted in sphag and the roots were awful but just after a few days in high heat / humidity they've started to grow again! I really like the pot too.

    Please excuse the dilapidated fence!

    Yes I concur with Bruce - very healthy plants. Would like to know the name of that Trichovanda. That pot may look very nice but I think the Rhyncostylis would not appreciate its roots being confined in that restricted space.

    I believe it's Trichovanda 'Thai velvet'. Flowers look pretty much like trichoglottis brachiata. Musky scent, not great. It was an online purchase. I liked how huge it was.

    Regarding the rhynchosylis -- the pot has nothing in it. Humidity is a problem here in winter so thought it would do better with roots in a pot. Should I put it in a basket?

    If it works in your area and under your growing conditions, then it is right for you.

    I also like the size and vigor of your Trichovanda. It looks like its ready to climb into the clouds. I by the way couldn't agree more than as to what Yew stated in his last post here. Not only do cultural conditions vary by geography and climate, but by orchid kind/species and other variables to long to mention here and these are the known quanities, which I believe still leaves out the unknown factors that make our orchid friends such a challenge.

    Both look very healthy, may some more light will help the Trichovanda to bloom.
