    Now that's the way. Spikes on demand, just add water and your there. These flowers are not only beautiful, but if I am not mistaken they look fairly large for Oncidium blooms? AL

    Thank you. Sure you can buy some of my water, just move to Boston, we have some of the most expensive water in the States. Costs me about $1,400 a year and that's only for 1 person! We have soft water here, I don't know if that helps you any. The flowers are about 2 inches.

    As I said I'm more of the neglectful plant tending owner than the hovering type. I'm surprised that any of my orchids survived since they require far more attention than I usually remember to give my plants. I've always been of the "hmmm, have I watered that plant this month person". So I'm always delighted when my orchids send up a spike.

    Wow, Martha - at that price, it's a good thing it works so well on the orchids!

    Very pretty one! I have thought of transferring to the Boston area since the company I work for is starting to open stores there. Hearing what your water costs is giving me second thoughts. Don't think I would be paid enough to be able to afford to water my 200 plus orchids. LOL
