I was told there wouldn't be any judging, but when Rich from my OS brought my plants back, my Prosthechea Green Hornet 'ISO' had a 3rd place ribbon on it!! Woo hoo!! This is my first ribbon ever, and I hope the first of many more to come. I think I"m getting a little bit good at this orchid growing stuff, and a lot of my babies are rewarding me for taking such good care of them.
Since my last orchid post, I've had a couple more bloomers:
This is the second bloom on my Phalaenopsis bellina. I love this one, because it smells so good!
Here is Mama's little winner with its ribbon:
This Cymbidium belonged to my mom. She got it from George Hatfield when my husband and I took her with us to check out his greenhouses. Its called Hungarian Rapsody #2
Brassavola nodosa, called the Lady of the Night because its scent come out when the sun goes down. Something munched on half of the bloom, but there are two more coming, so hopefully they will be intact.
The whole plant on its mount
and finally, Ascocentrum pumilum. I got this one almost exactly a year ago, and its a cutie. A micro-mini, it takes up very little space in the greenhouse. I think I'm going to have to look for a few more of this genus.
So, that's it for now. I have a lot of spikes coming in - the Twinkle 'Pink Profusion' is starting to open now, so I should have some new pictures to post in a couple of weeks.
Until then....Happy Growing!!
