We came from here
The thread "Our Orchid blooms in March 2021 🍀"
in Orchids forum
Today is April 1. and with that we start the new thread for the month!
I was considering of painting one of the blooms a crazy color and pass it off as the newest hybrid, but perhaps it it better to stick to the truth like I flowered my Rhyncholaelia digbyana?
Nahhh, the species plant just sits there and adds an occasional growth. But, the good news is, one of my old hybrids, Rlc Hawaiian Green Valley x digbyana does its usual thing this time of year, blooming with a tightly spaced doublet.
I noticed a single bloom on this small plant of Dendrobium leonis, this is my third Dendrobium with distichous growth. ( along with the huge anceps, medium sized distichum)
My Barkeria melanocaulon always starts blooming when I move my plants inside in the Fall and keeps on blooming until ca May inside. The spikes branch out somewhere in Winter. The plant grows truly wild without a pot, just hanging from its growth. If there is 1 brown scale lady around it will find the spikes, so it needs to be inspected daily.
Impossible to get a decent picture in-situ, but you can hopefully see it.
And Dendrobium Luz del Dia 'Kiilani' is also still at it.
Please all join in and post away!
