New Growth Pics

My Emma White Dendrobium has a new cane that is such a welcome site. I was pretty cure that this plant hated me. I had repotted it in bark, but  for some reason it had started to wilt and just look pathetic.  This is such a welcome site.

This new spike just suddenly appeared out of the blue. This is one of my NOID rescues that has really perked up.

I swear this wasn't there a few days ago  :P

A new spike on my Haraella retrocalla.   I've been so happy with this plant. It's such a "cute" little guy.
A very welcomed bloom on one of my NOID rescues.

Still a crappy June :(

I'm in the process of working up a list of that plants I've lost and which are hanging on.  Most of the ones that I've lost were just so badly sunburned that they just shrivled. 

I've been praying that they will all send up a keiki or something, but so far. . . . nothing.

Rough Week.

This has been a rough couple of week for my plants and myself.  The weather's been very crazy, and my plants have suffered greatly.

With the 100+ degrees and high humidity, my A/C took a beating and quit on me.  It's been very hot and humid in my plant rooms. Most of my Phals are stressed, my Encyclias look pretty good, and I think my Oncidiums are loving the change.

Hopefully, some of my wilted babies will perk up very soon.

On a positive note, I have some new growth on my Cattleyas and some of my Encyclias.   Yay!!

I'm proud of myself :)

I actually passed up an orchid sale  :)

Today at my local Kroger they were having a nice sale on Phals.  They had several large (6"+) pots for $9.99.  
I saw the table and turned the other way. They really had some nice looking plants this time.  

Anyhow, if anyone's looking for a phal, they really had some good plants. 

Crown Rot Week 4

Wow, it seems like forever since I've blogged. .  but, my cat chewed the power cord for my laptop and my replacement just arrived.  :)

Anyhow, my Orchiee Papillion is still hanging in there. I keep hoping that at some point I'll start to see some new growth.   Hopefully soon  :)
