We came from here

The thread "Our Orchid Blooms in May 2018" in Orchids forum

It is June 1. and I wish our weather around here would match that date! Smiling After this continuous wet weather night temperatures at the beginning of the week are supposed to be again around 50 degr F. Right now it is just foggy.

At least the Orchids are blooming, all 3 spikes on my alba Laelia/ Schomburgkia superbiens opened in the cage.

My noid Miltoniopsis opens some blooms

And this Den. Roy Tokunaga, bought in bud a couple of months ago, is still blooming. I can't believe how long those blooms last


Please all join in and post away!

Yes, that sure is a face! Smiling

You know the Roy Tokunaga was blooming in the house for several weeks and is now still going strong in the cage. No complaints here! Smiling

Could the spikes on that Schombo/Laelia get ANY longer? Hilarious!
I love those Dens....I just wish I could figure out how to get them to bloom...I'm close but there's still something missing in my care.

Regarding those Schombo spikes, the plants were hanging over the center bar in the greenhouse and I kept adding hooks to lower them Smiling . I couldn't lower them more or I would have broken some of the roots on this plant. Luckily those long spikes are fairly sturdy and can take being moved a bit, into the cage.
Btw I find it interesting that the regular Schom superbiens always blooms in late Fall into early Winter while the alba form blooms in late Spring.

We have the same problem at the University greenhouse..and that's a full size commercial house. The last spot they got moved to was right in the middle of the middle aisle, thank goodness it opened the next week!
I found a couple of things blooming just now.



this is a new to me plant that Bill Thoms gave me the other day. He's trying to get me
out of my comfort zone. When I mentioned that I HATE sphagnum moss, he found one that was mounted..so I couldn't say no. It's very cute, I hope I don't kill it.
Bulb. sikkimensis

and Vnra. Golden Spice 'Red Pepper' is a hot little windowsill sized plant.

Great start for June!

Our weather was gloom and drizzle all of last week, but I woke up to sun this morning. Hope it lasts awhile as they are supposed to seal coat our streets Tues-Thurs. so the park will be closed to vehicles and no watering. Have to get everything done this weekend.

Oh, Joshua...I love that pure white Cym. Lovey dubby what a beautiful spray of flowers!
I noticed that my new Bulbo. has a different name, a synonym . Is roxburghii the preferred name? My imagination runs wild with the image of two wild orchid collectors hunting down plants and naming them after themselves. Only to find that they have both collected the same plant.

Thanks Lindsey.

Bulbophyllum roxburghii is the currently accepted name for your plant; Bulbophyllum sikkimense is a synonym.

That Cym is just stunning, Joshua. I do love a graceful white flower any time.

Lindsey, your imagination isn't far from the truth, I'm sure. There are hundreds of orchids with wild orchid hunters' names on them, and it seems pretty likely they could have two or more of the same orchid with different names. That, come to think of it, would be the only practical usage of all this genetic research the boffins are doing - if they can discover an orchid with two names, and then TaDa! Get to re-name one of them.

Holy Cow Jim.. what a show you have going on at your house right now! Your Tibiana looks very happy on that slatted mount.
Ursula, your Walnut Valley is just adorable.. is it fragrant?
I have some reruns from last month that still look good.

That's a stunning plant with those long stems, Lindsey. Beautiful color too.

I just couldn't pass by this little guy out in the garden today - Enc. tampensis in it's full glory, and smelling divine, from 30ft. away.
