    All of your orchids are doing so well, Dawn. :bravo: Hope some of this will rub off on to my phalaenopsis orchids. I doubt it. :roll:

    Yes they do seem to be doing well thanks Joy!
    I noticed two of my Phaleanopsis have thrown flower stalks, they are still very small.. I will get a pic up as soon as I get out to the room :)

    no ... shakes head ( we need a little shaky head on here :) I personally don't think it is that I think they are just taking their own sweet time to settle ? Also as you said a while back ? I think you did anyway that the weather needs to cool slightly remember your weather is much warmer than ours. They have all showed up here after the cold snap we had, this is what it could be ! I am sure it won't be too long :smile:

    Do so hope you are right Dawn. :smile: Of course these orchids were, most likely, manipulated by the growers to meet the perceived needs of the market. :mad2: As you say they will need to settle down & develop their own rhythm, won't they?? :cool4:

    Did someone ask for a :shaking head" smiley? :???: How's this one? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Here is its opposite number, too. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    I received two new orchids as a gift a couple of months ago I think it was. The flowers have died off since but here is a photo or two of what they were like when flowering

    The first is obviously a Phaleanopsis and this one is a miniature Cattleya

    Oh my, Dawn, they are both gorgeous orchids. :wow: Absolutely stunning. :love: The phalaenopsis is so striking & the cattleya is such a delicate, beautiful flower. I love them both.

    Thank you for these :photos: . :cool3:

    This Orchid was sent to me by mail as a swap for another plant. It has been budding an orchid that has taken ages to actually come out. But here it is !.It is a baby plant so maybe that is why the flower is so small? I am not sure ?
    It is very small the size of one garlic flower maybe ?

    To be a bit more clear on what I meant the flower bud has been there for a long time... for a few months. I took the plant out to feed them when I came back from holiday and saw the little yellow "orchid" as it is supposed to be an orchid,looks just like a small buttercup. It appears that the one bud has dried up! maybe this happened when I was away?

    Maybe it is still practising how to flower, Dawn. :giggle: With your magic orchid hands it will do well. :cool3:

    I am green with envy with both your phalaenopsis orchids flowering, Dawn. They are beautiful. :love: Ours aren't showing any signs of flowers as yet. :sad3:

    Thanks Joy! It is only the two smaller varieties of Phals that are flowering Joy and they are late, the larger ones have already flowered. I am sure yours will pop up a flower soon or they are just settling from there move from the shop. The yellow Phal is not looking too great the one leaf has gone all twisted and spotty, I am hoping it is just dying off and not got some nasty fungus as it is sitting right next to all the others :apgn: Also my Cattleya's have not thrown any flowers :apgn: I have neglected them this past year with one thing and another happening! Oh well they did not die at least. That is not a very good photo of the new little yellow Orchid I must look up it's name again, I cannot for the life of me remember it. But it is in a hanging basket and to get close I kept bumping it, then would have to wait for it to steady itself again :roll:

    Yes that is what happens when the leaves are just dying naturally I think, it is the spots on mine that are worrying me!
