I have had this one about 3-4 years but this is the first time it has bloomed. I almost lost it to scale before discovering Bayers. It has five blossoms.

Here is a link that might be useful:

I love the blooms! What Bayer product did you use on the scale, Shirley?

I used Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer. The white scale (don't know the right name) Was introduced to my collection from an eBay bought plant before I knew enough about orchid growing. I tried everything to rid, my cats especially, from the pest but not until I tried the Bayer was I successful. I threw several away they were so infested.
