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.

As the growing season begins to get underway for most orchids, it’s helpful to look back at their progression, in particular the blooms they produce. Each month, I will look back at what orchids have bloomed for me as a way to help me record their progress.
