Default In bloom this week

It's been a while since I posted new pictures, but I want to share several today which are currently in bloom (and a lot more are close to bloom or in spike). I guess they've decided that they like the new house!

First is Brassavola cordata, with it's virgin blooms. The fragrance at night is wonderful!



Next is one that's been in bloom a few weeks, but when I first posted pics it only had a couple of flowers open. It is also the plant's virgin bloom. Aerangis luteo alba v. rhodosticta.



Anacheilium cochleatum bloomed last year, from a division given me by a friend, but each growth produced just five blooms last year. This year the growths are producing like factories, and showing no signs of slowing down.



Finally, a Phal hybrid, Phal. (Fortune Buddha x Brother Pumpkin), which I really like. It also is blooming as a repeat on a very young plant, and looking wonderful.



Also in bloom right now are two Phal. Intermedias which have been plugging along for about 3 or 4 months already (and are repeat bloomers) and a Phal. equestris v. alba that's been blooming about as long. I've posted them before.

Really nice ones, John.

The color on the Phal (Fortune Buddha x Brother Pumpkin ) is sumptuous.

Hope things are going well.

Very nice flower selection.

I find it very interesting how a lot of species bloom at different times of the year where I live as compared to other parts of the world. My Aerangis leuto alba v. rhodosticta, for example, (that is one of my favorite miniatures) blooms for me in late winter or early spring.
