Mystery Orchids: New Flower Spikes!

After nearly two months in my home, two of the five of my mysteIMG_3294ry orchids have new flower spikes. This is delightfully unexpected! The photo on the right: check out the origin of the new flower spike. It’s growing from the side of an old, cut-down flower spike, and at the point where it looks dried out (and may lead to the false conclusion that nothing would grow from that dried spot), but yet here is the new spike.

The flower spike of the second orchid is a bit harder to see but it’s also in the center foreground of the photo and this spike is growing diagonally from the base of the plant, i.e., it’s an entirely new spike.

The other three orchid plants remain healthy and will flower when they are ready.

I’m so pleased to see that re-growth of flower spikes has come so quickly. The mystery of at least these two orcIMG_3295hids will be solved in the coming months. I can’t wait. A very nice way to celebrate the Lunar New Year, which is shaping up to be quite a happy and lovely one!
