|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. |

|We can help if you want.|

|I am definitely into lots of anticipation all the time. |
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.|

|You make it sound easy! Maybe I should try again....|
May 9, 2010 12:47 PM CST
|Oops. Fixed those months. Feb to April. I think I own too many plants from the southern hemisphere!! |
I would encourage you to try again, Ursula. Hey if I can do it.....

|Thanks. You certainly do well with those!|

|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. |

|Yes, Buds are beautiful! The whole growth cycle is amazing.|

|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. |
