    Cool Some of my Orchids in bloom and in spike

    My white Phalaenopsis (veteran plant ), which has been in bloom since Jan/Feb.

Size:  181.9 KB The blooms have developed a greenish tinge as they matured.

Size:  217.6 KB Pale pink/spotty Phal. Another veteran plant. The spike was initially knocked off a few months ago, which is why the plant added a secondary spike from the point of damage to produce this one very large bloom. It has decided to add some recent buds.

Size:  232.0 KB One of two new inflorescences developing from what has been a rather stubborn Miltoniopsis. I was really happy to discover this, as it has been recently re-potted.

    Thank you for your kind words, Terry. My parents love gardening, (but I love orchids, hehe).

    Thank you very much, I always feel very excited when I discover a new spike on a plant (especially a stubborn one!).
