Here are a few things that opened up today in the bright sunshine, despite the freezing cold outside.

Look at you posting all these photos!! Way to go!!
Looks like you have many bright spots for all to grow...I'm still waiting for my H. Tinkerbell to bloom. I have a few that have stalled out. My H. LaPaz has 3 scapes all growing at once, waiting for those to open to see if it really is H. LaPaz.

Thanks Kristi,

Good luck with your Tinkerbell and the unusually cold winter you're having.

Wonderful display Fred, congrats!
Your Sumatra resembles my Rosado, but it might be just the light that does it... I don't have Sumatra so pay no attention to my babbling...

Thanks Lenanen,

That's the good thing about this wonderful group...there's no such thing as babbling. :-)))))

Warm Regards,

Fred,
Yes....more cold headed this way. Just came in from the GH...it was 80+ degrees there...ahhhh!! Trimmed and weeded a little (something must have dropped seeds just as I was bringing pots in). I have to admit, I'm already looking for scapes on old bulbs, but honestly I know that it is about a month too early for that! Just anticipating...

I love how they're reaching for the window, after they flower do you turn them or is it something you do all the time?

Hi Devon,

I try to turn them, but I have them growing among their friends and when they get too big...I just let them be. I figure they, they know what they want why fuss with them.

Warm Regards,
Fred

Congratulations Fred on a job well done! Don't you just feel so darn smart once you master the act of posting multiple pictures?? I know I did, and it took me a while too!

Your flowers are just lovely and we look forward to seeing more of them!

Donna

Don't you just hate this miserable weather!!

Hey Fred,
Looks like you will be enjoying blooms for a while yet. I am curious what the plants are in the bottom right of the last photo. Why and how is the medium built up like that?

Hi Bill,

They are Neofinetia Falcata and they are growing in long strand New Zealand moss in the traditional Japanese method. Hopefully this summer, they'll bloom.

Warm Regards,
Fred

Hi Donna,

It is a wonderful feeling to finally figure something out and yes, I'm totally done with this dang cold. It's so bad, my dog doesn't care about the squirrels in the garden.

Warm Regards and Keep Warm
Fred

Fred,

How long have you had the neos. I hang mine in trees during the summer and they bloom multiple times -- the scent is heavenly and amazingly strong for such a little plant.

Oh and your hippies are gorgeous too!

HI Jody,

I have been growing the Neos for 3 or 4 years but I was treating them poorly last year or so and they didn't flower. This year, I plan on putting them and all the other orchids under the grape vine but on a suspended wire shelf for maximum air/wind exposure. I hope this works.

Warm Regards,
Fred
