I got this guy a few weeks ago at bargain basement price. It was looking pretty ragged, and just finishing up a bloom. I wasnt seeing anything new going on until this morning when i noticed something glowing through the husk on the prominent PB, and to my delight, found this little guy thats been hiding from me!!
It's a new growth!
i was looking again yesterday, and found yet another surprise!!
Excellent - a nice summer spike!!
yep. definitely a nice picmeup. so that should be blooming in a month or so - the paph will bloom for several months, the psygmorchis will be blooming again soon - and by the time these things happen, i should have even more orchids to bloom!! :-D
Wogga that plant would like to be repotted.Now is the best time as there is a new growth under way.Dont worry about repotting while its in spike as the new growth is the govening factor.
These plants can and do often 3 times in 2 years.
i actually just repotted it about 3 weeks ago, from a 3 or 5 inch pot into the one its in, with fresh medium. i unfortunately did it at night, and got it pushed over to the side too much. think i could just readjust the current potting?
just do the repot again.With the growing of these never let them get dry ,constant moisture is needed.The rule I was brought up with is :- If you think it will need water tomorrow ,water today.
yeah, i water it about twice daily, with a concentration on the prominent pb. ill repot it tomorrow and get it more centered or left biased. thanks!!
i redid the repot, closer to centered. the rootbundle is just so FRIGGIN DENSE!!! i could only get it so deep in the pot - it was rootbound like crazy for quite a long time, apparently. anyway. shes rewarding me with raaappppiiddd growth!! check it out!
