Orchids Update

I'm glad to report that Phalaenopsis 'Happy Girl' is still happily growing and sending up a new bloom spike...
 
 
...looks healthy too, I can't wait to see flower buds eventually (apparently most everything that orchids do is slow. That's fine though, the flowers last and last, dying off slowly too.)
The old bloom spike is still green too, yet not doing anything. Huh. Oh well, green is good so it's staying put for now.
The other old spike is fully brown. I'll trim it off eventually, but right now I'm scared to do anything in fear of disrupting the blooming activities.


These two mounted orchids are doing well too, they are Oncidium 'Aliceara Alice'...
 
...and Brassavola nodosa, the fragrant 'Lady of the Night'...

...as well as this mounted Maxillaria Tenuifolia hanging out with terrestrial orchid Cymbidium 'Suzie Q'. Suzie pretty much looks the same as when I bought her (at least not worse!)...

...but Maxillaria has new growth! Yay!
 
Happy orchids make me happy!

Wow!! I'm impressed! I'll be sure to show these pics to mom next time I'm up there. She'll be so proud of you! She may even adopt you and change her will so that you inherit all her 'babies' lol!

Thank you! Not sure I'm ready for new babies, my "murder rate" is still pretty high :)
