Onc/Psychopsis mendenhall first bloom! Male
Default Onc/Psychopsis mendenhall first bloom!

I've had this plant almost 5 years now, and this is the first bloom for me. Not that it hasn't tired but I've broken the spike twice now .

This is one of the easiest plants to grow for me. I remember when I first started growing orchids a nursery refused to sell me one of these as they said they do not grow well in a regular home environment.

I bought this orchid from a show as a single leaf back bulb and it has more than flourished for me with around 12 pseudo bulbs.

The flowers are quite hard to photograph, this spike has 3 active buds on it that I can see so i hope I gt a long show from this beauty!

What a delightful bloom!

Like you, I've always found Psychopsis to be an easy grower. And a truly delightful plant.
