Phalaenopsis: New Flower Buds!

State of grace! My clearance-bin phalaenopsis orchids have produced lovely new flower buds from the new spikes that formed from the original spikes. They are loving the light and overall climate of my bathroom, so it looks like they will live out their days perched atop my step ladder in my bathtub. I will have to take mostly showers from now on and take baths on really special occasions!IMG_2961IMG_2960

I have been especially fortunate that several of the flowers that were originally blooming when I bought the plants are still there and looking fresh even now.

I have made sure that the plants are securely fastened to their respective stakes since the top-heaviness of the flowers can often cause the spike to snap off. I will add more stakes as needed to reduce the risk of this happening.

I hope that these lovely plants will have long and happy lives in my care. They have brought me great joy!
