Phalaenopsis Orchid: Two New Flower Spikes

This is a lovely sight on a winter day! One of my Phalaenopsis orchids has new flower spikes branching out from older flower spikes from last season. As shown in the far left of the photo, I only cut down a portion of just one of last season’s flower spikes because it turned brown. The other flower spike from last season was left untouched since it remained green. In between flowering seasons, I only kept the growing medium (wood chips) moist but not soggy.IMG_3290

No doubt that new flower buds will come from these two new flower spikes; perhaps even more flower spikes will emerge because these are early days. This is a gracious way to start a new year!
