Oncidium from show.
Oncidium, not mine, its one from the show.
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.
My cymbidiums are just sending up spikes now, which is the last week of Autumn. They have been under trees all summer in pots and flower during our winter. Some flowered last year for six months until the late spring heat burnt them off.
I would move them into semi shade and do not water too much just spray the foliage. Orchids rot really easy they do not like wet roots.They do need some sunshine to flower. Most Orchids flower in winter and spring for me and in zone 9 you would be much the same.
I wish everyone would have their zone and place of garden in ther subtitles..
I am having a hard time with my reed orchids, their out in the sun and I water them 3 time a week. any ideas
