This is the one small orchid out. A dendrobium, flowers are 2cm x 2cm . They look great when they have more spikes maybe next year.

Vicky it sounds great, hope they give you as much as you are giving them.

Everything is slow at the moment, I have one small orchid out inside at the moment. Out side things are starting move again.

Grant love the crested euphorbia nivulia, sooo different. Not sure about the grafted ones, looks like your trying to hold there heads from popping off . Which is what you are doing .

I only have around 16 houseplants left since the move. This house isn't set up well for them. Lack of light for so many windows in here for some reason and all the windows have the heat/cool vents under them coming out of the floor. I think I am getting to the point if I can't eat it I don't want it any more. I have a family living with me right now to help with the work too. They only eat raw whole foods except what he whips up to put into the dehydrator. Yummy flax tortillas, choc/mint cookies, plants and weeds from the garden, almond & walnut milks etc. Have a one week old girl and a 2 yr old boy, so much fun for an old lady who would rather be a hermit. My big plant is still at Marsha's house it is loving her upstairs, it gets lots of light and I water it once a week or two. Forget to get pics when I am there.

It is good to find out a plants real name, so many have the same common names. The common names change depending on what country you live in too. So when you like something that has been posted, its still hard to find.

Thanks for the name of the Mistletoe Cactus.. I never knew the real name and even sent some to Elizabeth Fowler. I just called it drooping pencil.

The orchid is not flowering yet, I am in the coldest time, things are just holding and waiting. My plants don,t die from cold, but they are not growing very fast either for about a month in winter.

Love the pinecone cactus, have not seen one before. Does not look like it has spikes. I will keep my eyes open for one of these. Running out of room, I am sure there is something I,ve doubled up on, that could go.

I have put it outside again and the spikes have grown even longer, but still no flowers open, they will just stay like that now until spring and some warm sun. My other orchids are the same growing spikes but not opening.
