Roots!
 
Roots are busting out all over! All over the old dead last years' ones...

Doing some repotting since the roots are a-rooting now. Seeing how the bud
sheathes are coming. Found a speculative seeding that I bought years ago
ready to flower. Hope its as nice as the ones online. (Blc Mem. Bess
Thompson). Posted pics of whats open now. (on flickr)

The scale and mealies are abated for this nanosecond of time.

The Masd coccineas wish they were back in the Andes.

What's up with you all?

Roots!
 
Just about everything is waterlogged! We've had a couple of dry days, which
is good. After all the rain, I need to get out there with a shot of
fungicide. Yesterday I freshened up the snail bait; seems to have worked.

A great deal of repotting is done, and what is not probably will wait. A few
exceptions: reed stem Epis and a couple of Dends that are calling my name.

We had a terrific flush of Catts over the last couple of months (our plants
are maturing!), but it's a little drab out there right now. More will come.
The Vandas have been *very* good to us this year, and continue to spike like
crazy. Remember that big white Vanda, Zengyo White? The one none of us could
find anywhere? That thing is, for all intents and purposes, always in bloom.
It will have a couple of weeks between one spike and the next, but that's
it.

Trichoglottis brachiata has buds coming up and down the trunk. Can't wait!
And Plectrelminthus caudata has two spikes that will probably mature in time
for our first display next month.

All in all, things are good.

Looks like Hurricane Hannah is heading for Florida, too. Hopefully not your
way.

A reproduction of the Nina (of Nina, Pinta, Sta Maria fame) was in Oakland
this weekend. Will put up soem pics if I get the chance.

The way Hanna looks suggests that we'll get more rain here and have a little
wind. Unless things change drastically, we won't be putting up any hurricane
panels.

there are in that cross.

Di, how'd you get your T. brachiata to spike? I've had one for about a year,
wired into a net pot. I spray it one or more times daily, but it just sits
there and looks sickly. No critters I can see.

It hasn't grown all that much, Tom, but it looks great. It's in a slat
basket, no medium, lives with the Vandas (pretty high light all day) and
gets watered every morning for 5 minutes. Fert when we do the Vandas. My
guess is that the light is the key, along with good watering.

No special care here. Dumb luck, maybe? But all our Vandas have been
fantastic this year, so maybe it was jealous!

Thanks. Mine looked great when I bought it from Orchids Alive about a year
ago. I've been concerned about too much light, because although the roots
look very healthy, the leaves are very pale, lime green.
