One of my most difficult moments is when the orchids burst to blooms when I'm still resetting the garden. I guess it must be the weather factor where it was very hot for the weeks and then the change where it started raining everyday.
And that's when the flowers begin to pop here & there when I'm halfway resetting their pots and trailing materials. This one is actually tied on the gate temporarily and that's when this one flowered - Mokara Orchid.
I'm still in love with this one.
It had flowered twice in my garden & both times it was a sudden explosion of blooms.
I had reset my Ground Orchid. (Spathoglottis Plicata) Earlier it was sitting in a pot where I first planted it. This time I divided it into 2 pots - I guess the new breathable space gives this one to absorb more nutrients and the shock might have awaken this one to a continuous blooming.
The new location seemed to be burning the leaves but somehow the exposure promotes blooming. Rarely I get one stalk and it dies prematurely but this time I now have 3 spikes of flowers!
My office friend had given me her dancing ladies orchids (Oncidium) were actually sitting on the floor for few weeks in neglect. I had to rush this one as I had noticing that the bulbs started to rot & the leaves turning yellow and falling off.
So far now there are steadily recovering.
Hope to see the 1st flower - ASAP.
I had noticed that my Cattleya orchids actually turn out to be a whole lot of back-bulbs.
There were no new shoots coming out from the whole root mass and the pot was way too small to support the whole orchid plant.
I manage to break it up into 4 potions and gave one portion to my friend.
(Can you imagine the 4 portions of these in one small pot!)
And lastly, My Necklace orchid - the one that I rescued from the roadside.
Still going strong but haven't seen any new shoots or flowers so far.
3 bloomed and 3 more to go.
