    Stacey, I hope it all works out for you and those two spikes. I heard about that heat wave.

    I've sort of got it all down to a routine here. It's still comfortable enough in the morning that I can open the windows, and then in the afternoon, I close them and then turn on the a/c. So far, all my orchids seem happy.

    Unfortunately, I don't have A/C. That makes temperature control a bit difficult during a heat wave. In hindsight, they probably would've been better off outside since it was 80 outside (vs the 95 inside) when I came home from work. They would've had more of a breeze outside as well.
    Live and learn, I suppose. Luckily I am moving into a new house in a couple months, so hopefully my orchids will be happier there. Since it is a new house, the insulation will be much better, plus I will have A/C!
    Sounds like you will have 30+ plants in record time. lol. I'm currently down to 22 1/2 plants. I have to call the 23rd a half since it seems to be on its way out. The main plant got crown rot. There is a basal keiki that I will attempt to remove & repot this weekend. By this time next week, I should have 22 chids. :P

    And not two hours after that last shot, it now looks like this.

    I don't dare close my eyes, or I'll miss the show. It's almost opening right in front of my eyes.

    No. I went to bed right after that second shot, and missed most of the show, because this is what I awoke to this morning.

    What a beauty it is! I agree orchids are more fun than anything else I have done in a very long time.

    Default An Update!!

    So far, this phal is still in full bloom and looking beautiful, and happy in her home in my new orchid room.

    In addition to a new leaf formation that's been working for weeks now, this morning I was doing my daily morning misting, and suddenly found these:

    This new root growth is pretty well hidden between two leaves, right at the top of the medium. No wonder I didn't see it before!!

    And each of the three flower spikes contains one of these!! Looks like we'll be having some new blooms in the not too distant future.

    I just love surprises like this, don't you?
