    Default paph venustrum Phrag Mem Dick Clements paph insigne x charlesworthii

    Hi all,
    I just wanted to show off the orchids that I HAVE been keeping happy instead of just asking for help with the ones I haven't

    This is most of my collection here. Phragmipedum (some variety of mem dick clements) in the lower left, then clockwise: Paph. charlesworthii x paph insigne seedling, noid phal, noid cattleya, paph venustrum. This picture is a couple weeks old.

    Here is my baby venustrum from this morning in his bath:

    Here is Paph insigne x P charlesworthii showing the growth on the new leaf he finally popped out! I got this plant (and the venustrum) at the Spokane Orchid show in March and his guy never looked good until suddenly at the beginning of may this teeny tiny leaf started popping out... and not where I thought new growth was due on the plant at all. Made me rearrange my whole thinking on where the plant should grow and what the oldest parts of the plant were! Any ideas on what a bloom from this cross might look like? I have a tag with photos of both parents that you can see here !

    And here is a young Phrag Mem Dick Clements that I have had since the previous year's orchid show. He has been super happy the whole time with lots of new growth on top, and just a week or two ago I noticed this poking out at the base:

    Is that new growth or a bloom shoot?

    Besides these I have the cattleya that you can see in the first photo, which is a division from one my sister in law is growing. My division hasn't bloomed yet but it was only repotted about a year ago. Its full of fat happy roots and fat happy bulbs so I hope next season I will see some blooms off it. The blooms are a gorgeous orangish red to purple!
    I also have a Mtssa Shelob and Odcdm St Anthony of Egypt. The oncidium alliance don't do as well for me but I'm trying. Shelob is making some small flowers on an underdeveloped bulb but I'm afraid I probably will have to just cut the bloom shoot for the sake of the plant... I'm not sure they're going to make it far enough out to develop right anyway.

    Thanks for looking!!

    That's a new growth on the Phrag. Spikes come from the center of a maturing growth, not from the base of the plant.

    Thanks guys, nice to know about the phrag, that's exciting either way. Its my first phrag. Well, and my first Paphs, my first phal, my first cattleya.... I'm happy they are enjoying themselves and I hope I dont make them too mad when I move next month! My variegated ficus also seems to be thrilled with sitting around on the orchid shelf (and I think it finally decided it was root bound enough to start really growing. hehe)

    I'm so excited by all my wee little orchids I just hope I keep them all alive long enough to bloom! I know it will take a while with babies like these...

    Very nice healthy plants! If you want to see s picture of a flower, just type the name in the search bar of your browser, and you will have more info that you will need. Also goes for great culture information.

    That's true in most cases, but I couldn't find any pictures of children from that cross, I was just wondering if anybody happened to know of any, or have a good guess of what it might end up with. Half the fun was getting a seedling that will produce a surprise flower! Anyway, thanks!!

    Just wanted to give an update on these babies after keeping them 2 years. Just some new pictures that's all. Beginning of the happy warm porch season, they'll be going out in the next few weeks as I feel it's warm and safe enough temperature wise on my enclosed porch, right now is the end of a long cold winter in a south facing window
    Paph venustrum who is in need of repotting:

    Both of the above plus a no id mini phal that I got last summer at the grocery store. That thing bloomed like mad and might even be putting out a new bloom shoot way at the bottom. guess we'll see!

    The noid phal from before. it sulks all winter and cheers up all summer. Silly thing. Haven't got a bloom off it yet :/ It really didn't like moving across the country nor when over 2013/2014 winter it was in a relatively cold and dark shop. Maybe next bloom season if it cheers up on the porch again this summer, it only just started sulking a month or two ago this time around.
