Wow , what a bargain Meanie , it's so beautiful well done ....

20 Jan, 2011

 

Thanks all!
No Sticki, no greenhouse, although they are scattered around the house in various stages of development.
I have a Habenaria Medusa reserved and should be with me in 6/7 weeks which I'm getting excited about.

not a single one of my orchids is flowering at the moment...very disappointing as they usually flower at this time of year. I think it is because they have been repotted this year and they are sulking :(

medusa?? isnt that the lady with a head full of snakes??

20 Jan, 2011

 

Yes stickitoffe that is medusa, she is the protecter of Capricornus. or Capricorns.

Karen - I have a Phal that is just producing it's first flower spike (maybe two) in over two years! Boy has it produced some leaves (and a keiki) though!!

Sticki - Habenaria Medusa is here.....

thanks meanie
isnt it incredible ~ its like a troop of ballet dancers ~ you can see their gossamer skirts and even their raised arms!
it is beautiful but i think it has the wrong name it should be something more beautiful!!

20 Jan, 2011

 

It's one of my absolute favourites! I hope I can do well by it.....

20 Jan, 2011

 

im not surprised its your favourite! outstanding plant!

20 Jan, 2011

 

Over the next couple of weeks I will be helping to plant, or attache to pillars, hundreds of Phalaenopsis hybrids as part of Kew gardens Tropical Extravaganzer. I will probably be sick to death of the sight of them by the time it's finished!

Meanie:

Wow! Beautiful orchid!

These orchids are very common and easy to grow here. Have the Phalaenopsis orchids been easy for you to grow?

25 Jan, 2011

 

Rbt - nice problem!!

Delonix - they're easy once you've worked out a "cycle" to suit the conditions of the house if that makes sense.

25 Jan, 2011

 

Meanie:

Yes, it makes perfect sense. Orchids are very touchy about bad air-circulation.
