Since it is the middle of the month - perhaps a second thread is in order.

My small Podangis dactyloceras is throwing out some pretty blooms

The plant I bought a couple of years ago as Coelogyne pandurata (but is probably Coel. Burfordiense) is in the process of opening 6 spikes, the show started yesterday!

I need to lift the plant to the table and get a better angle on this, but it isn't moved that easily. I had carried it out on the deck in May and it is happy in that spot.

And a small flowering on my Neofinetia falcata, Amami form -
It had lost the whole center of the plant last Summer, but 2 outside fans stabilized and they are growing and even flowering this Spring.

Thanks. Smiling
And yes, the Coelogyne is FUN!! I am glad it made it nicely through the indoor season, since I just stuck it into one corner of the greenhouse with plants dangling over it and simply flooded all of them daily!

Very nice Ursula, the Podangis dactyloceras is especially charming with its long tailed crystalline blooms.

I got my first Neofinetia falcata last week ('Benisuzme'), I will see how that goes.

Ursula, that Coelogyne is simply supurb!

Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

Not yet! I used a nut mixture, have to see if that works. But the Kitty was chewing something for quite a while. I wonder if she got a Chipmunk!

Have to get a Turandot ticket....

Can't remember if I posted this Phal. before It spent a couple months at work. Brought it home yesterday to give it some real sunlight. It has really cute small flowers and was a favorite of the patients and staff at work. I was almost afraid someone would take it home.
