    Default Oncidium alexandrae and Phalaenopsis

    Hello,

    Two of my orchids in bloom:
    Name:  Oncidium alexandrae (640x424).jpg
Views: 947
Size:  128.2 KB Oncidium alexadrae, I acquired this plant in November, when the inflorescence was about 15 cm (the first flower opened within the last week; some of them are not quite properly formed because my room is not as cold as it would like). It is a very beautiful species.
    Name:  White Phalaenopsis Prince (640x424).jpg
Views: 527
Size:  138.8 KB White Phalaenopsis, its the third time that it has re-flowered for me.

    Whites, blues, and purple/violets are my favourite orchid colours. :-)

    I had that Onc when it was still classified as Odontoglossum alexandrae. It was not an easy grower for me. My summer temps got too high for it.
