First one for the season over here, if you don't count a Phalaenopsis that just wont stop flowering. Some kind of Cattleya hybrid is as far as I have got to identifying it, the local flower shops don't tend to bother with such mundane things as correct names, but it's growing well which is enough for me.

Nice thread.

I always struggled with orchids until I did a weekly 10 minute soak in the dirty water discarded from my aquarium filter.
No more! They always seem to be in flower and the flowers last for months.

Yes it's quite a contrast. It was -13C outside this morning and we have had those kind of temperatures for the past week, but indoors the orchids are happily putting on a good show, makes winter a bit more bearable :)

The Cymbidium don't seem bothered by being moved out into the greenhouse, not a single flower bud was dropped and it's putting out new shoots. The flower pattern has even improved compared to last year when it had to spend the winter indoors (second picture).

Hi all,
Forgotten the name but I got these from Darrel
The purple flowering one is a <"Dendrobium kingianum"> cultivar. They usually flower late Winter / Early Spring for me. The other one is the "Gooseberry Orchid" Coelogyne cristata, which should flower about the same time. I have eventually <"re-potted mine">, and it is still sulking.

cheers Darrel
