    A know-it-all, who sometimes leaves comments of my pics in my Picasa web albums, says the green knob is a root & goes into great detail about orchids being epiphytes, blah blah, etc, etc, etc. D'uh!! :roll: It is much thicker than the roots I have seen on this plant & is a different colour from them. They tend to be a silvery grey in colour, not this bright green. We shall see, I guess. I know what I want it to be. :lol2:

    Just had another look at mine Joy! it could be a root ? , the roots have a shiny end to them when they are new, and new root and new flower stalk also look very similar. But if it is a root that is also good news shows it is getting itself ready for anchoring nicely. I can bet your's will flower so don't be too disappointed if it is a root and not a flower stalk. It is getting roots ready maybe for ALL the flowers she is gonna give you .

    It is just that the knob is larger & greener than its aerial roots, Dawn, so I am still hoping. :whistle: Never mind if it isn't, as I did not expect either one of them to flower this year, though it is nice to have hope in that direction, isn't it?? :lol2:

    The growth, on this phalaenopsis orchid has, well, stopped growing so, I guess, it should no longer be called a "growth". The plant is also losing a couple of leaves. They turn yellow then drop off. It has already done this, after its flowers had finished, earlier in the year, so it may be a habit of this type of phalaenopsis. Hope so, as I don't want it be a sign it is unhealthy or something. It has slowly grown a couple of new leaves so I am wondering if it grows, & establishes, a couple of leaves then sheds an older pair.

    Other than that it looks fairly healthy. Not that I am an expert on these plants.

    Decided to place the phalaenopsis orchids outside where they will get some morning sun & fresh air. As it is winter here the air will be very fresh but they seem to be handling it ok. Maybe this will give them the jolt they, perhaps, need.
