Still my favorite....
that is a beauty !!!
Just lovely. Their little faces are different from plant to plant.
Yes, we're in different parts of the world, but how do you grow yours?
I love mine, too. Mine bloomed last fall and it is holding a new bud but seems stalled. It did, however, get a new growth over the winter that has done very well.
I think it is waiting form my house to warm up a bit. I can't wait, it's such an interesting bloom.
Your right Susan the warm weather will crank things up!
WC, I grow the psychopsis in straight lava rock in an clay orchid pot. In summer it's watered daily (keeping in mind I am in Florida and a greenhouse grower) I go with a daily wet/dry cycle with pretty much everything. It's in the same light as my catts (3000+fc). It flowers almost nonstop, two spikes, starting a third.. I also have mendenhal and a papilio var aurea that I grow mounted. I really *love* this plant tho.....poor thing. This plant started off as a small piece of a plant a dear lady gave me. Hurricane Frances had blown it out of her tree and into a garage two blocks away. Then, last summer, a squirrel dumped this plant out of it's pot and carried it up a tree. My husband shot it down with the BB gun (the plant). So .....it's been through so much lol. It's had some serious setbacks. I don't know if the "nine lives" thing applies ...............I would think so......
Beautiful Pat but what is the yellow blooming fool in back of the psychopsis?
That blooming fool is Oncidium Grower Ramsey!
my fav also. Mine just opened another bloom and durn it, I broke off one of it's 'antennea' while moving it into the house. I bumped the ceiling fan. Your plant sounds like a determined survivor! Happy growing.
