Orchids in Bloom: November 2017

Another month has gone by, and I have only one orchid in bloom to share with you. This is the Phalaenopsis Liodora that I purchased last month. She has dropped one of her blooms, but has four very healthy ones left.

Her fragrance is not as strong as it was when she first arrived, which I am putting down to her adjusting to her new environment. This does happen with orchids, particularly when they are new to my collection. Hopefully, when she’s settled her fragrance will get stronger. We shall wait and see.

Happy growing!

The other is my good ol’ faithful orchid that has been in bloom almost all year so far.

Orchids in Bloom: August 2017

This month there are three orchids in bloom.
