    I like the coir pockets you have nailed to the tree.

    Default Thanks Cattan and Pavel

    Yes they are Twinkle Oncidiums. The one with most blooms is "Fragant Fantasy" the smaller one is "Gold Dust" and the mauve one is "Tsiku Marguerite" I don't the name of the Cymbidium sorry. I cut up coir hanging basket inserts for my orchid pockets. We have lots because we buy them to use in the garden. We use the the metal domes and turn them upside down and pin them with small tent pegs. They keep the bush turkeys and Bandicoots from digging up our young plants and bulbs.

    Thank you for your comments,

    Roy

    Beautiful. I've got some Twinkle 'Fragrance Fantasy' but not in bloom yet.
    I have two of my Twinkle 'Red Fantasy' in spike right now (two spikes per plant).
