My DBF asks me not to show him buds, only flowers. But I live for new buds and just gotta share. Feel free to show us what you are anticipating.

That is my Catasetum Jumbo Pearl x Jumbo Babylon. There's a third spike forming in the back, too.

Here's Schoenorchis fragrans today.

Ceratostylis rubra hasn't bloomed in years so I was very happy to notice this bud today.

I enjoy seeing the buds. I have some things developing on some of my orchids, but they are all so new to me that I can't tell spikes from leaves or buds. I'm just watching them to see what they develop into.

I am definitely into lots of anticipation all the time. Smiling
Your 'Haiku Mint' looks great!
If I could grow and "bud" Catasetums like that I would be in 7th heaven.

......as Ursula waits on her Den aggregatum and realizes it might be too late for a bud-picture.....

So Catasetums. I stop all water in late fall/winter. When the plant grows roots two inches long, I start watering (usually Feb-April). Then a spike will start and by spring the plant should bloom.

Oops. Fixed those months. Feb to April. I think I own too many plants from the southern hemisphere!! Rolling my eyes.
I would encourage you to try again, Ursula. Hey if I can do it.....

Wow, enlarging that last one made me wonder if the plant had bugs, but I think it's just the way the light was shining. Sure can't see any in person.

I'm really excited about this! Here is the very first spike I ever seen that wasn't already on an orchid when it was purchased. It's Bc. Hoku Gem 'Freckles'. Now, if this isn't a spike, just don't tell me.
