    Cool Catching up...Assorted Orchid Pictures

    Well, I've been busy trying to catch up out back. From not being able to work with the orchids I've lost a lot of the Cattleya section. But apparently Vandas, Encyclia and various Brassavola crosses don't seem to care when i'm not spraying. Most of the flowers turned out smaller this year...then there are the mutants that just decided to bloom huge and gorgeous anyways. Orchids...baby them and they die. Give them little to no care, ignore them...while keeping them in too much sun and on a watering timer; they bloom like crazy. *Shrug

    Cool

    And lastly...the white dendrobium is mounted on a palm tree outback. When it and the purple bloom together they are gorgeous. This year the white waited awhile before blooming and has three spikes going.

    On a ride around the neighborhood I found this lovely piece off a Ponderosa Pine tree. It begged for a couple orchids.

    Yesterday I saw this while down checking on the native Encyclia Tampense. I hope you enjoyed the pictures. Another week till the Orchid show so I'm practicing with the cameras every chance I get. :0)

    Great shots of gorgeous orchids, Connie!!! I particularly like the V Pure Delight, V Joaquim 'Douglas' (very well grown) and that white Eria. Your mount/support in the first and second last pictures are really very novel ideas and I'll try to copy these for some of my vandas . Thanks for the post, Connie.

    I find anything "pine" seems to agree with the orchids. The trellis idea was accidental. I had hung a vanda on a trellis and by the end of the summer could not remove the roots. So...that is where the trellis thing came from. And I have used old branches for some time. You need to make sure the wood has aged so it isn't releasing toxins. I read somewhere a long time ago that when the wood first gets cut, you need to let it age awhile before using it. And whenever I have broken that rule, the orchid dies that is placed on green wood. If it is a limb that broke off and was dead it is okay. For my vanda's that always seem to struggle, when put up against wood they begin to thrive. Most vanda's only want a hanger...no wood. I think it's the terete hybrids that like it best. The super tall terete vanda I have only went nuts after I planted a big log into the middle of a pot of dirt, old potting trash, broken pots, Styrofoam bits, etc. Now it's over 7 foot tall.
