New root and leaf growth here as well though seems more new basal growths than new leaves on existing fans. Have had a little leaf drop on some but they weren’t in the best shape to begin with so actually look better without those leaves anyway. In bark outside on a north facing balcony that is mostly shade because of building structures. Some indoors by the sliding door. A couple in NW facing windows to experiment with different lighting.

Camille, I’m sorry about your collection….

Not sure what it is, probably something bacterial or fungal.

Sorry to hear that. Weird that so many plants become infected with that 'something'.

Hi everyone

How are your Sarcochilus doing?


Just watered my orchids and found a nubbin on the side of the stem from my fitzgeraldii.

It's so tiny that I can't tell yet if it's a root or a spike. It's fairly high up, way higher than the most recent roots, thus my guess is that its a spike. It also grows above the most recent spike. I've never seen it in bloom myself. Must have bloomed for the seller.



Once it is larger I'll show a picture from it.

Fingers crossed.

Growing conditions:
Outdoors this summer and fall, brought it in when temperature was 10C and lower.
I have it in the windowsill, pushed against the glass. Temperature in that location between 12.5 and 14C.
Keep it on the dry side.

Mine still not doing much, I don't expect them to. At my house, they usually bloom around March ( a few early ones may show up in later February, late ones in early April. Timing may be different for those that have to move indoors. Last winter was cool and rainy, the blooming was more like April to May.

I also have a cultivar, way bigger and way healthier plant. It's like the fitzgeraldii growing roots but can't find signs of spikes. Not yet.

Mine just sit patiently while I look at them impatiently.

While looking at them, hypnotize them and whisper that it's ok to bloom for you now

Repeating something I mentioned up the thread... the hybridizer Mr. Barrie of Barita Orchids in Australia told our society they water and fertilize every day of the year. Their plants are in continuous growth, even in winter.

I don't have any left because I can't water every day.

Mine has just concluded a month's worth of spending nights in the white wine section of my wine fridge at 45 degrees in the hopes that will be a sufficient enough diurnal temp change to get it to bloom.

All I've noticed so far is that the process doesn't seem to have caused any sort of physical damage. Probably all psychological.
