    Nice! Sometimes when you buy an orchid (without flowers), you have no idea how old they are.
    ..and it can take a few years before you see them bloom.

    I purchase a few cattleyas in 2" pots a while back and some of them are still NOT in bloom.
    LOL! and at my age at 74+, I may not see them in bloom!

    I asked my son what he's gonna do when I pass on ... and he said he would bury all orchids with me, cause he doesn't want to take care of them all ...LOL!

    Beautiful. I have about 10 to 12 plants. flowers every year and get pollinated by bees. Have lots of pods right now. the funny thing is this is a weed for me. The seeds disperse and i have small saplings coming up everywhere in my green house. Gave away lots of them to friends this year.

    Wish and pray both of many many more years of active life and sure both of you will see all your orchids in bloom multiple times.
