    My Orchid Jungle

    hello,
    the weather up in PA has finally gotten warm enough so my orchids could move outside to my patio. please disregard the few burnt plants in the photos, i admit it was my fault i put them out in full sun all day while i was getting the shelves set up and kinda forgot about them.

    The jungle....



    the everblooming Paph. pinocchio, its been in bloom on that stem since december of 2009!

    My Zygopetalum still looking gorgeous...

    An oncidium that my brother won in a raffle at the local orchid show...

    and a few close ups of just plants...



    i will probably post pics if i get any new flowers, hopefully!!!
    Good Growing!

    Nice, and you've got blooms too! Looks like my random rack full of orchids 'cept all I can get to flower are some easier phals unfortunately, haha.

    How much sun do they get in thier current location?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    In their current position they only get dappled sunlight, no direct sun.

    I knew you had a lot of orchids. Not that many orchids!
    How do you keep that ODCM. in bloom so long? Mine only lasted about 3 weeks!

    Awgaupp, that spike actually formed after the new growth formed, the original spikes are long dead they lasted about three weeks like you said.

    Is that a mini Vanda in the last pic? I think I see an Onc. jonesianum too. Very nice orchid collection.
