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 have a couple of pictures to post, but not feeling well so they will have to wait. It was cold last night, but all my given Orchids look OK, the hot water service is next to them which keeps the chill away a bit. I,m expecting it to be a cold winter after a hot summer. Cold nights mean lovely warm winter days and blue skys but dry no rain. When it rains the nights will be warmer and the days cooler.

We had an inch of rain last night, so I just went out to check that my new orchids did not get too wet. They are up against the house under the eves, it did get in a bit but not enough to worry about.
