Not sure of the name but I forgot this little beauty showed it’s face as I was leaving home the other week. I’ll have lots of blooms hopefully to go home to as a lot of my orchids were about to flower.
@charlotte thanks for asking. I’m still pretty sore and only have a certain range of movement I’m allowed to do while the screws set. But patience is a virtue my granny told me. So wait I will and then we shall see. 😊🙏🏼🌺
It’s not a wild flower. Just a bit of “light pruning” from one tree that is essentially public property. I’ll send you a pic so you can see. I live in a very sleepy old suburb of Brisbane Australia. Some of the trees and plants have outlived original owners
@pixierose I don't remember if it was that plant or not. That's why I say never. You want more growths and more flower spikes next year or not? Normally we split our plants if they are huge. Thee pseudobulbs it is ok, but not huge.
@linfoster I use the orchid food that comes in the black square bottles. I have a spray bottle and I put a bit of each black bottle in and make a potion fill up with rain water and spray Daily in the summer alternating with the food and just plain rain water. Now I water less as they would get too wet. Others say to dunk them in a bath of water once a week but I find just spraying is enough for mine as I’m spraying the roots. I’ll be in a couple of days but recovery is a long time. Thanks Hun
1st flower spike. The other one was hiding when I'd taken this picture. Not sure what type of orchid it is. I thought I'd put it on before but a whole load of plants in my profile seem to have disappeared. Anyone else have this problem? 🤔
@Christos she has the dark red flowers, the picture I put previously. I got her to flower last year and she produced 2 bulbs and 1 side has flowered. Am I supposed to split the new bulbs off and plant in their own pot. Thanks Christos 😊🙏🏼
