More Phalaenopis orchids



Instead of posting individual photos of orchids as they bloom here are a couple of photos of everything that's blooming now. These were the past bloom sale orchids we bought for about $5-6 apiece last year. A bargain considering that we can place these around the house instead of buying cut flowers arrangements that last only for a week or less. The orchids last at least a month. Hopefully we'll have them bloom again next year.

I have been busy with home improvements projects the past two weeks, hence the paucity of posts and not posting comments on other's blogs. Should be back on a more regular schedule in a week or so. It's warming up. Trees and shrubs are budding and can't wait for Spring anymore than I...can.

Thanks for posting. I'm excited about attending the New York Orchid Show next week.

Hi gotta garden,
We drench them in a mild fertilizer/vitamin solution every week and keep them in a portable indoor green house to keep the humidity high in the winter. Otherwise the gas furnace would dry them out terribly. If we get the same number of blooms next year we can congratulate ourselves as successful phalaenopsis orchid growers ;)

dfp,
The orchid shows are wonderful with many unusual and beautiful varieties we don't normally see. Trouble is they're also a great temptation to buy them either at the show or online with usually disastrous results because of the very difficult requirements for growing them. We learned the hard way so we stick to the easier ones - tho seeing the really nice ones are a treat. Happy looking. Pls. post some pictures of the orchids.
