I have been adding to my small collection of orchids now I have found which seem to be happy in the conditions I can provide. Recently received was another Phalaenopsis orchid.
Unfortunately part of the flower stem broke in transit:
There is just one bloom left on the plant but it may produce some more as there are 'buds' along the spike which sometimes produce new flowers.
Also I have received a miniature Cymbidium which is in flower:
My original collection of Cymbidiums haven't flowered for about three years. Last Spring I split and repotted them. They are all showing new growths and one has rewarded me with a flower spike which will take several weeks before it is ready to show its flowers:
To finish off here is last week's weird photo alongside the original:
As well as distorting the photo to make a 'tiny planet' I added some atmospheric clouds.
