Two new Rescues.

I haven't blogged in a while, I know.  I've been trying to wait till I have some blooms to share.  ((It won't be long)).

Anyhow, I picked these two up from a nursery in Ft. Worth this morning.  Both are in great shape (just a little sunburned).  I'll post some pics once I get home  :)

1st one:  Phal. Malibu Debutante

2nd.      Phal Sinica Cherry

New Free Plants :)

I went to a social thing at my grandmother's retirement community and while I was there they were replacing their plants.  

I am VERY happy with my newest additoins  :) The Snake plant is almost 5 feet tall and the emerald thing is large too.    Not to bad for free  

New Growth Pictures :)

Here's some of the new growth that has been emerging lately.

 Onc. Maureen x Onc. Haematochilum  (Mule Ear Oncidium) - 
You can just barely see a small little one poking through the bark. 

Encyclia Profusa - 
This plant I had actually thrown away. It was in my pile of sun victims from last month. This was a big surprise when I went to throw them out last week.  

I re-potted her in a small ceramic pot with a plastic insert.  

oncidium jairak rainbow - 

You can just barely make out a new division between the two adult plants. 

This has been one of my favorite plants 

Slc. Jewel Box 'Scherazade' - 

Small growth just emerging from the bark   :)

My White Dendrobium - I thought that I was actually losing this plant a couple of weeks ago.  She was so sad looking after her sunburn that I had placed a red "watch me" sticker on her pot.  To my surprise, a cute little cane is suddenly emerging  :)

Blc. Mildred Hollingsworth Sun Bulb-

Here's a new growth that I noticed yesterday.
