Oh no now what
By DMT at 2015-04-07 06:30
I did not start my orchid obsession, I live and work in a care home for the elderly. The families started to bring there relatives who live in care home orchid for birthdays, holidays, ect. I didn't want the orchids to die on the residents so I started to read about them and have not stopped.
I use a weakly-weakly weekly fertilizer with no Urea, Better Grow.

Joining zis world

I've actually had orchids for many years, and well academics have forced me to step away from them, with disastrous results.
Well fear not, for the prodigal botanist returns.
I have ended up with quite a collection indeed.

In the beginning
By smcholland at 2015-01-11 07:56
So since I'm new to this site and it is about orchids I figured I should probably wright about the beginning of my obsession or where it even started.
I lived in Washington state for a while before I moved back home (here in Wrangell Alaska) I lived there for a bout a year and a halfish. I lived with my partners mother and step dad.

Vanda and Onc. Speckled Spire 'Whisp' in bloom

Oncidium Speckled Spire 'Whisp' bloomed over Thanksgiving, around the 28th of November. The pseudobulb started as a growth in mid spring, and the spike was first sighted on 20 September, indicating about 8 months from new growth to flowering.

The Vandas are approaching full bloom. There are 9 spikes total between the two of them: 6 on the large plant and 3 on the smaller. The flowers, however, have come out quite small in comparison to the October blooms. I would like to know the reason why. I only have a general idea of why this might be.

Paph. Odette's Vision is beginning to open up. This plant has been an absolute dream from the beginning. I have not had a single issue with it aside from the flower coming out a little wonky when it first bloomed. I am optimistic that this time, its flower will be pristine. It certainly looks like it will be beautiful!

Watch Out! Spikes break off easily!
By CambriaWhat at 2014-11-04 02:51
Orchid spikes are starting to reach dangerous lengths! Must start picking plants up VERY CAREFULLY, or better yet, stay a safe distance from them unless absolutely necessary!
