    Congratulations Amey! 7 years is an awfully long time..it's funny how patience is preached in the growing of orchids yet in general most orchid growers I've met are paradoxically the most impatient, time obsessed lot I've come across! I suppose the cure for impatience here is simply to buy so many orchids u don't hv time to pine over the plants not blooming!! Or maybe that's just what my orchid vendor says to get me to buy more!

    Thats exactly what I think, buy so many that you have at least some faithful bloomers, the year round, so that you leave such guys alone LOL. I think it is the impatient people who like to grow orchids and in the process learn the value of patience, its natures way of rectifying the error in impatient people hehe.
