    Default Psychopsis Mariposa 'Green Valley'

    These are among my favorite orchids and hope to add more to my collection. It seems like I waited forever for this one to spike and bloom. I see another bud developing and hope to have a long display of blooms for the next year or so. Hopefully more spikes will develope to give me a real show.

    Very healthy, happy orchid that I think from here on will bloom for you often, though my Psychopsis, does take breaks to rest or grow new leaves/spikes. Wait till this plant sends up and blooms on four or more spikes. your going to be even more impressed when it does. AL

    Beautiful Bill! I have a psychopsis that I have been nursing for a bit over a year now. Got a bad case of sunburn and lost ALL of its roots. The OH was horrified as I'd "killed the giraffe plant"! I was under the impression that they were impossible to bring back from the brink, but I have three new growths that are quite large...It took forever for me to get roots at all. When I did, I put it in a hollowed out chunk of tree fern with a bit of sphag and it has gone crazy since! Maybe I'll bring it in and show it your pics for a bit more inspiration!

    Nice healthy psychopsis Bill! Congrats! Mine is about to bloom again after a bit of a rough patch. I think the moss it was in started to break down and I didn't repot it in time. Most of the roots were gone but, like Jason's, it's coming back slowly.
