Finally, another of my rescued Walmart Mothers Day orchids from last June has bloomed.

Nice one, Chris, lots more buds coming and I see some nice green leaves in the background there, too. Hurray!

Just a suggestion, you really don't need to start a whole new thread to show us all a flower, post it to the monthly blooms thread, and write the story of the bloom with your post there. The advantage is that more of your orchid folks are watching the monthly thread so you get more attention to your post.

Thanks Elaine and I understand about the monthly blooms thread. I'll make sure to remember that. Yes, I've been misting with the UltraClean. No more white stuff on the leaves and they are looking greener. I've also gotten my shade cloth installed and the temp has dropped a whole lot from what it used to be.
