    Red face Miltonidium, Rossioglossum, Phalaenopsis & Vanda in flower and bud

Size:  148.6 KB Miltonidium Katrin Zoch. I have had this mature plant for over a year, and it has old flower spikes where it flowered at the nursery of origin. This is the first time that I have managed to encourage it to flower and I am very pleased. It has six inflorescences developing in total and this is the most advanced of the spikes. Also, this lovely hybrid emits a noticeable vanilla type scent.

Size:  143.4 KB I assumed that none of my three Vandas would flower this year due to the root disturbance caused via trying out various ways of 'housing' them. This is Vanda Blue Magic, which is the only one I have re-flowered successfully before (last summer), and seems quite content in a wooden slatted basket (with minimal sphagnum moss) on a humidity tray (most roots are exposed to the air). One can see a flower spike emerging; it will be interesting to see if it completely matures as it is rather late in the season here in the UK. However there is more light in my studio than last year due to the addition of a large(ish) south facing window.

Size:  168.9 KB I have two Rossioglossum grande plants, and both have been living outside all summer (under a sheltered overhang). They are still outside, and this one is developing its first flower ever!! :-)

    Very nice! I look at blooms as our reward for the attention we give to the orchids and their reward for teaching us well.

    I am a newbie at growing orchids. I hope I have some re-flower. However, I will never give up trying.
    Good luck with all of yours. Keep me posted. I will you as well.
