we came from here
The thread "Our Orchid blooms in October 2016"
in Orchids forum
October came and went with lots of gorgeous blooms and good conversation. Around here in the NE our Orchids are all inside for some weeks now, as November 1. rolls in with a touch of frost on lawns and car windows.
Let me start with my Renantanda Boon Rubb, all buds are now open.
Brassokeria Mayan Spirit keeps it up
I have posted the Ceratostylis retisquama already a couple of times, but I just couldn't resist snapping another quick pic. It is always an easy bloomer, but it is particularly happy this Fall.
Regarding the following Spiranthes odorata, I had them growing in my backyard at the overflow of our little (bath tub -) bog. One plant came up from seed in the bog and I had potted it up and treated it as one of my tropical terrestrials. It did so well growing like this, that I moved the other plants which had been declining, also to a pot in straight peat moss.
The flowers are strongly Anise scented, really nice!
and this morning
Also the Ancistrochilus rothschildianus blooms some more. The scent on this one reminds me of a dog coming inside after getting wet from rain.
Please all join in and share your beauties!
