My indoor Orchid garden, most are the ones I was given by a guy in the Orchid club, they are sending out spikes and it will be fun to see them for the first time.

Phalaenopsis, Moth Orchid native to South East Asia, a new buy for me, so I can not put it in the show, that would be cheating, I learnt years ago, that you might be able to fool other people but never yourself.

Side by side you can see how much it grew in 2 weeks but not enough. SAD

Moved this Cym inside to try and get the spears to grow and open in 3 weeks for the Orchid challenge our club has entered.

They are growing about an inch a day in the warmer conditions, but I will need luck for it to be in full bloom.I think this is tactics by the Shepperton Club, to run the challenge so early. They have a lot earlier season than clubs down south and will have early blooms.

Just re-potted my oncidium into a hanging pot, they are supposed to viewed from under, just like they would be in nature hanging from trees.

"Thank you Keryn, you obviously are fertilizing just right!  Mine are indoors, but it has been a relatively cool summer.  I will try just a little fertilizer.  At least the plants look healthy and still alive!"
