If memory serves, mine bloomed around this time last year too and the seed pods started opening around April. Epidendrums generally don't take as long and some other orchids.

I've put up a table next to the window and brought them in. Hopefully they won't drop the buds. I've had bad experiences going from a protected greenhouse to my open air growing area. A while back I...

How does 'Little Stars' compare to B. nodosa? I've found nodosa seems to do best with lots of afternoon light.

Nice flowers

I just planted two Ylang Ylang trees upwind of my house a month ago. They are already starting to grow. Hopefully it won't be long before they start blooming.
If I ever move back to the States it...

I agree with you that it would be great. But it's not practically feasible when sowing your seeds outdoors. At least not how I do it. I spread the seed all over my property in hopes that some will...
