Those are all fantastic! Thanks for posting them.
Thanks for sharing, they're gorgeous!
Thanks so much for the tour, I always enjoy going to the farm!
what do you mean Phals ONLY ! if the good lord made anything more beautiful that a Phalinopsis he has keept it for himself thanks for posting.
Wonderful to see them so happy.
Wow! And all species, too! How cool is that. Thanks for the photos.
Nelson, I have several Phal. species that are blooming and sending out keikis at the same
time. Some of the keikis are also sending out little spikes. Do you normally just let
the keikis continue to grow on the mother plant or remove them?
Gorgeous plants, but you KNOW that!
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen.
Because I have quite a number of equestris, stuartiana, schilleriana, and hieroglyphicas, I just let the keikis be. It was great to see keikis bloom along with mother plants, especially for schillerianas, which are very fond of putting out keikis.
Thanks, friend Nelson. Leaving them is my inclination, but I wanted to assure myself
that the keikis wouldn't weaken the mother plants.
I love the schillerianas! Do you ever have to worry about snakes while walking through your orchid farm?
I grew up in farm.
I don't think I have encountered a cobra before, but I did see snakes. Almost all of the time when one sees a snake, both the snake and the human have the same reaction: to run in the opposite direction.
My impression is that they are especially vicious only when they are protecting their young.
One the other hand, snakes are not the only animals that can get you startled. Many years ago, while I was chopping wood, a foot-long chameleon dropped down from a tree and clung to my thighs ( I was wearing shorts then). THAT can get you startled, especially as it is cold-blooded. I now chuckle that he mistook my thighs for tree trunks.
