Phalaenopsis Bellina Pink

My Bellina Pink opened one of her buds today; it is stunning (but I am biased :)) No scent just yet, but hoping it comes soon.

Yeah ... I'm really leaning towards repotting it even though I know there's a good chance it'll set it back. My gut feeling is that moss is not doing it any favors. Ugh. I would've repotted it a long...

Question about Gigantea Alba

Hi everyone. I have a question about my gigantea alba. I have only watered it once in my care since I've had it (which is about a month). It's in 100% moss, which is what is what it came to me in. My...

It turned out to be pest damage; it is infested with snails and aphids and had black rot on 2 of the 4 bulbs unfortunately. I do not have this orchid any longer sadly. :(

Need help identifying healthy flower spike on Catasetum

I went to my local orchid show today. I ended up getting the After Dark catasetum. They said it would bloom in around 30 days. My question is however, the flower spike (I’m assuming?) looks ‘dried...

I just got a phal gigantea alba x sib. It has a leaf span of 17 inches and what I'm pretty sure is a new leaf growing (still very small though) It's also got good root growth happening currently, two...
