About a year ago, I made a purchase from Burnham Nurseries which included a Dendrobium Victoria Reginae orchid. This particular Dendrobium is the only ‘blue’ orchid. She came from the specimen plant that is housed in Burnham’s Orchid Paradise exhibition (and it is massive!). She came to me as a single cane with leaves growing well.
You may remember a while ago, that I was looking after an Oncidium type orchid for my brother; Odontioda Stirbic Red. This orchid had no roots when I collected it but it made a recovery and went back to him last year when it was strong enough.
I posted about a new Oncidium type orchid that had been given to me to care for recently, as my relative is no longer able to care for it. After a few weeks of being in its new home, something exciting happened!
That’s right, we have a flower spike! Blooms to follow soon hopefully.
If you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you’ll know that I purchased two new orchids this year. Pleonie orchids. My Pleonie formosana grew very well for me last year, so I decided to try my hand at a few more.
