Particularly check Cal Orchid (http://www.calorchid.com/) - they typically have lots of Angraecoids. And their plants are excellent.

Perhaps you haven't yet seen a plant go in a direction that you hadn't planned upon. I have seen it often. Since active eyes can be on either side of the rhizome and can even activate on an older...

SP, sorry I need to disagree on this one. A lot of orchids (this included) tend to grow along a rhizome...so they tend to march across the pot in linear fashion. Sometimes one guesses wrong in...

If it was grown locally, so likely acclimated, I think it should do fine. If it was in a warmer environment then the challenge is that you are already well into the cold weather. I grow mostly...

Don't worry about fertilizer at this point - even healthy orchids need very little. The "once weekly, weakly" routine is good, but fertilizer isn't going to do much at this point. Think of fertilizer...
