    It just seems to me as though the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flower buds have increased in size since yesterday. Do not think it is my imagination but it could well be so. :lol3:

    It is probably just wishful thinking on my part, Dawn. :whistle:

    There is definitely a change between the photos Joy so I think you are right. In the last one they do look bigger!

    Thanks, Dawn & the buds definitely do look bigger to me, but with the second pic the angle is closer to the camera, I think. Should have measured the buds to see if there was a difference. :lol: Too late now, though. :giggle:

    The buds on the flower spike of the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid are certainly getting much bigger. No sign of them opening yet, though. This is, indeed, a long drawn out process.

    The first "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flower bud is starting to open. These are yesterday's images.



    No sign of the other buds following suit any time soon.

    The first of the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid buds to open. Have tried to lift the stem up with support but it is very stiff & won't allow much movement. It is almost at right angles to the plant. :lol3:

    These two "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid buds will, most likely, be open tomorrow.

    It has taken 3 & 1/2 months from the time the flower spike first appeared till the first flower opened.

    A wet & miserable winter day. It is raining, so only two pics today, & the ground is saturated.

    All but one of the buds, on the "Kakadu Crystal" cymbidium orchid flower spike, are fully open. This is wonderful to see as this is the first orchid flowers we have grown ourselves.
