    Some of the Valley Olympic "Prolific" flowers are starting to wilt. The centre throat or cup turns a dark pink as it starts to die then the petals darken & close sideways as in the bottom right flower. Theese three images were taken eight days ago.

    :smile:Thanks for the pictures Joy.  They are still pretty when they turn a deep pink and are ready to fall off.  The ones on top are still beautiful.
         When the last one falls off how long will it be before they bloom again?

    Thank you Grranny.  :smile:  We bought these lovely orchids in July 2011 when they were in flower. The Kakadu Crystal flowered again for us the following winter but it took another two years for it to grow a new flower spear The one which was broken by the lawn man. :grr:  The Valley Olympic "Prolific" reduced in size & it took three years for it to grow large enough to flower. Maybe, now that it's back in action, it may flower again next winter. Do hope the Kakadu Crystal cymbidium orchid will also do so.  :luck:


    The Valley Olympic "Prolific" cymbidium orchid flowers are at their end with just four flowers left of the ten. Their throats are now all dark pink a sign of the end.

    We shall Granny, but they won't last much longer, I'm afraid. 
    The next day & all the wilted flowers have dropped off of the Valley Olympic "Prolific" cymbidium orchid. The throats of all four remaining flowers have turned the deep pink.

    The last image of this year's Valley Olympic "Prolific" cymbidium orchid flowers. Two days later & the remaining four flowers are now starting to droop. In two days time they were gone. The orchid is now back outside &, hopefully, it will provide us with more pleasure next year.
