This is some of what my new sunroom looks like at 7:00 AM. The light is not all that great since the sun is just peaking above the horizon. The plumeria have been in bloom since July and the orchid since September.

That is Oip. (Oncidopsis) Nelly Isler 'Swiss Beauty'. It has a nice fragrance too. I got her in a trade. I love to trade. Hurray!

Love Plumerias. Had a few and gave them away, as I did not have space for them any longer. Have to be a favorite of mine.
My Phalaenopsis Orchid, I think I asked you about is putting out new flower spikes off of the old spike. Very pleased. Is this the time when I should be feeding it well? Have been fertilizing it weakly.

That's why mine get cut so often. I have to control their size. Congratulations on the re-bloom from the old spike.

I really have no set schedule for fall/winter fertilizing, Rick. I am not that organized. Sighing! I probably average fertilizing (1/4-1/2 tsp./gal.) every third watering though. I am a subscriber to weakly-weekly.

What a wonderful solarium full of gorgeous plants! I have 2 plumies in my greenhouse, but I keep having to cut them down. They are way too big to let them grow naturally in my tiny dome. Mine are cuttings a friend sent from Hawaii, but I have no ID's for them. Maybe you will be able to tell when I have bloom pics?

Perhaps, but probably not. It is hard to label plumeria accurately with only the blooms. Even the time of year, the temperature, the character of the light when the pictures are taken, and the care will change the coloration. If you have the Celadine, I can identify that by its distinctive leaf pattern. That's the only one though.

Here are some of my other plants. Some orchids and my Clivia seedlings. They are now in the house, but in spring they go back to the greenhouse.

Thank you @IbisFla. Those orchids are already a few years old. They bloom almost all year long.

@Adeniumgirl - I have some clivia I started from seeds 2 years ago. They have 2-3 leaves but they seemed to have stopped growing over the past year. They are still alive and a very nice green, but no new growth. Any advice?

I'm loving all the plants I'm seeing here! I keep looking for spikes on my other orchids, but nothing yet!

Hello @Froggiesgirl. Best thing is to keep seedlings warmer all year round. Mine are just a few months old now, but they still make new leaves. Best temperature is about 20 c now in winter. Also give them fertilizer regularly. With a high amount of n.p.k. That will make them grow faster.

Thanks so much for your advice! I had 4 that were blooming size, but I traveled to TN for the birth of my grandson in Jan, 2014. While I was in TN, my children didn't cover them and all four froze! So, I'm starting over! Sighing!

That is really to bad. I have one blooming size. A plain orange. It did bloom 2 times this year. The seedlings are all different kinds of colors. I did buy the seeds from South Africa and China. Good luck with your new seedlings.

Thanks, Ken. When they bloom, I'll try to have pics of the full plants and not just the pretty blooms. I'm going to have to start doing that with all of my plant photos. Up to now, I've just focused on the pretty flowers. Smiling

Adeniumgirl, it looks like you have some very nice plants! I used to have a lot of orchids my daughter gave me, but my constant traveling made them all bite the dust. I will be getting more for the greenhouse this spring. We have the heat, watering and venting all automatic now, so they'll have a better chance when we're not around.

Karen, I can only identify the Celadine from its leaf pattern, and once you see it, you'll never forget that pattern. Here is what to look for on your leaves, a double vein pattern running along the periphery of the leaf.

Thanks for the pics, Ken. I definitely don't have that one! It's quite unique and I've never seen that one.
