I have been meaning to share for a while. There were about more, but as I expected they died. The temperature in my house is very cold so I'm trying to water them less otherwise they'll likely die from cold. So far, so good! :) not bad for a windowsill in SE England.

Sorry that it's not a fantastic photo!

-Dee.

Any pics of it in full bloom? I bet it was breathtaking :)
Also, it's very interesting how you grow them bare-rooted in empty pots. I've seen that on orchid forums, but have never been brave enough to actually try it.

Oh! I didn't get a notification about this message, my apologies!
They're not empty pots, it's just the roots are manic and have opted to grow mainly above the bark. :)
I do have a photo. I think I uploaded it somewhere else on the forum but not sure.
It wasn't the entire bloom as there were still plenty of buds left to open, however I was happiest with this photo.

The plant did the same thing this winter, in growing about a hundred buds. However it was just so cold that they've not made it, much like many of the plants.. 'Upsetting' doesn't quite do it justice..
