FLOWERS – POTTED PLANTS
Cymbidium and Phalaenopsis
It is not the year of the orchids for me, but I am lucky enough to have cymbidium starts budding. Three stems at the most on a plant.
The cold winter is getting on now, and it is no good to have the orchids sitting outside. To protect from the cold wind and the frost, orchids are sitting inside the house.
Cream and Pink flowers Cymbidium
Cut flowers from the florist or from the market are taking place to decorate our home instead from the garden. I could not resist to take these orange gladioli flowers home.
The phalaenopsis is doing ok, the new shoot is growing great.
There are more indoor plants, from mixed ferns to fiddle leaf fig. These orange and cream potted clivia are pictures of last year, they are spring flowers, so I am looking forward to see them soon. But the cyclamen has been in flower since early winter, indeed it is pretty pink. The orchids don’t flower as good as last year, most of them are having a rest, but overall they don’t do badly. I am happy enough. This weekend the local orchid show is on, I must go to see to check it out, do I need more orchids plant. A good question!
I have enough orchids to keep me busy, you need time and energy to care for them, I think forty orchids are a lot, but I could be tempted still if blue flower orchids are there.
I have been looking for blue flower of Vanda. Who knows I may find it in the orchid show.
