    Default Zygonisia Cynosure ‘Blue Water Sailing' in bloom!

    Here's a couple photos from this weekend! Looks like that new growth is a spike (and another p-bulb I think) No fragrance that I can detect, but the flowers are quite lovely!
    One of the flowers hasn't fully opened, it seems like the petals might be stuck together? They don't look fused from what I can see. I'll just let it do its thing

    The orchids I have at home seem to be loving how hot it's been in my house! I'm considering moving a bunch more back home from the office.

    Wow thats a pretty flower! Thanks for sharing it! I'd bet it's fragrant only certain times of day.

    I'd leave the bud alone and see what happens. Everytime I try pulling a bud open to correct the problem, I end up messing it up. Love the color and shape of the flower on this orchid.

    cheers,

    Yeah I don't want to mess with it; with my luck I'd end up breaking it off or causing all the potential buds to blast.

    The second spike has gotten pretty big in the last couple of days. I'm excited for more flowers! Looks like generally there's only a couple of flowers per spike? This is rather different from the other zygo I have.
