My eight phalaenopsis orchids are looking quite healthy with shiny green leaves and at the moment are all but one, producing flower spikes, with two spikes on a couple of them.
The oldest pink orchid is already in bloom with twelve flowers on one of its spikes (shown in picture), it’s other spike will have a similar number of blooms.
There is just one of the miniature ‘twins’ still not showing sign of flowering, but managing to produce some small healthy looking leaves – I will persevere knowing that it will flower again eventually.
The two keikis which I removed, one from a full size plant and the other from a miniature have both produced healthy mature plants now, both showing new signs of flowering.
I have maintained my original weekly routine using the same fertiliser and leaf spray throughout.
Have a wonderful festive season of Christmas and New Year.
