Another from yesterday’s indoor photography. I’m so pleased with this #zygopetalum this time so many blooms and lots more buds and such a wonderful fragrance #houseplants #indoorplants #orchid #fragrant #houseplantsjoho
Trozy blue is back. Thrilled that my move on from moth orchids is, at least for now, flowering. The first bud is open and wonderfully fragrant. Thanks for the advice @Christos and the good luck wishes @terrimclaughlin both worked! #houseplantsjoho
#zygopetalumorchid Trozy blue. Arrived home to a very exciting delivery. Decided to branch out and add a different kind of orchid to the family. Fingers crossed that it does as well as my others, any advice welcome #houseplantsjoho #orchidadvice @Christos
Thanks Terri, have been very lucky with my moth orchids, with successful propagations and keeping them growing and flowering repeatedly so I’m going for a challenge. I hope I can show it again soon - even though a couple of buds had, disappointingly, been knocked off in delivery🤨 🤞
@valjones-hughes First of all congratulations for the new arrival. Tomorrow you will be able to smell her amazing scent. It is very fragrant. Now about the care. 1. Do not repot at this time. The best season is spring. Personally I repot all of my orchids when new growth and new roots appear. 2. They need bright but not direct sunlight.3. Water it very very well with room temperature water. Allow the medium to dry slightly but not completely between waterings.
@valjones-hughes 4. Be extremely careful with the water on the leaves. They can easily turn black or develop black marks. If you like to clean them use a moist but not wet cotton bud or a microfibre cloth. 5. Be aware for mealybugs. Some times can be really bad and they hide underneath the leaves or behind of the petals.
