Hi All, well after a nightmare six months, I've got life more settled, new gaff as well, the good news is I managed to save/keep over half my Orchid collection, which are now happily cluttering up my windowsills, lol.
The Orchids I had to part with, I know are in excellent hands.
my Phals, Oncidiums,Miltonopsis, are in flower or spike, Dendrobium Apollon.....is giving a fantastic display. :)
and a possible spike on Holcoglossum. :pray:
Have a great day one and all.
Barnie. :character-oldtimer:

Hope whatever happened in the last six months soon becomes just a bad memory, but can anything beat orchid spikes to make things look more positive?

Welcome back Barnie !

( :( Although a bit disappointed Maudiae didn't get a mention?)

Thankyou, Terry ,Kenneth. Steve "my bad"you can put your disappointment back in its box- The Maudiae is alive and well this years growth is good, bigger than last years, and also a small growth started for next year :thumbup:

Nice one Barnie, it's usually a reliable little plant although mine had 2 spikes last year, it only has 1 this year, the bud just about to open (still, can't have everything?)
Interested to know if the Holcoglossum is spiking.
