My orchids were kind of in a shady corner all summer..........I didn't do much but water them. Well, golly sakes, when I went to take them in the g'house yesterday, the roots on some of the cork mounted ones had gone crazy. There are even bloom spikes too. I'll include the Vanda in this, as it got some new roots over summer, and I notice it's also got a bloom spike starting.

Healthy roots mean future blooms. Good growing, Anna!
