RE: Anything blooming for you?

It sounds like you have a lovely bouquet going...

I have several Phals reblooming, and rebudding, including
Yu Ping Panda "White Leopard", Doritaenopsis Green Field Zuu #3, and a shell-pink NOID gift.
I also have an Oncidium Twinkle Red reblooming and a Paph. in early bud.

My latest acquisitions were Oncidium Heaven Scent "Redolence" (Lovely fragrance), a Miltonidium Ruffles and a couple of pretty NOID Phals, one a Mini.

My main love is still Butterfly Gardening but the orchids really catch my eye in the bleak Winter months.

8-10 hybrid phals, several more in spike.
Phrag. Dick Clement x sargentanium

A couple of other mini-vanda types spiking,

Probably a couple of oddballs I've missed.

All of this in a spare bedroom, my windowsill here at work or in window sills at home. Pretty nice on these gloomy winter days.

Bob

I've got a standard Cymbidium 'Mighty Sunset',
Vandafinetia Blaupunkt (currently going to the Lansing show)
Den. Burana Blue Sapphire (also at show)
Leptotes pohlitinocoi (ditto)
DL Misoguchi 'Snowflake'
a mini cat by Hausermann that has 'Eric' in the name
and a species Den I bought at the last show.
Not too bad, and I have four deciduous dendrobiums all filling out their buds right now.

RE: Anything blooming for you?

We've had a very weird winter here, with record cold and mostly gray days. But still have a few blooming:

Bletilla striata
Dendrobium anceps
Encyclia osmantha (has a huge bud)
Jumellea confusa
Paph Hsinying Alien (Supersuk x Raisin Pie)
Phalaenopsis NOID (white w/ red lip)
Phalaenopsis NOID (buds look like a purple mini flower)
Restrepia dodsonii

I can't resist looking at the clearance table at Lowe's for drastically marked-down Phals (usually untagged). I take them home, give them some R&R so they will bloom again, and then give them to my local society for the raffle table.

RE: Anything blooming for you?

My favorute haunts for Phals lately is Hy-Vee and Copps Groceries when they first come in. They're usually untagged, but attractive nonetheless, and the care is all the same.
