Orchids

It would quite frustrating when you find the orchids you have don't flower.
Don't you think so?
I have almost a dozen of orchids and not all of them bloom
And so - I opt for the ones that are easy bloomers -even then, they are quite a challenge.

You - regardless what - these orchids still need good fertilising regime:
Weekly, weakly...
And a good fertiliser too - too much and the roots get burned and the leaves prematurely fall..
Too little and inconsistent - well, nothing is going to happen.
So- there you have it - the Curse of the unbloomed orchids.

It took awhile for me to identity the pattern.
I'm still learning and so far I realised that the best fertiliser is still the organic ones: Sheep manure and bat (guano)
I do once awhile use foliar fertiliser but somehow its not happening as I expected.

The other thing is the temperature drop - that makes the orchids bloom.
Sometimes in the tropical - everything is constant so there is no big hike in the temperature difference.
Unless its a rainy season - few days of rain and one sunny day burst them into blooms.

But when they do bloom - its worth all the wait and the efforts.
Do tell me your orchid secrets - would love to hear from you.
Till then - enjoy my garden flowers.







Epiphytes Blooms - Orchids & Bromeliad

It felt forever for me to get into blogging,
the worst scenario was I had forgotten my password
and not even sure what email I was using.

I had to dig up a stack of papers of which I thought
I had placed my passwords and email that goes with it.
I felt lucky that I manage to retrieve it,
now its all about getting into the hang of blogging
I realise that it is matter of habit - you stop and you loose it...

So, for those who were patiently waiting for me
and was wondering what happen to me -
well, lets just say I got busy and weeks went into months
and a change of lifestyle and commitments brought one to another.

Regardless, my garden is constantly thriving (whether I'm busy or not)
There are always something beautiful to discover in my garden
When I look for it - it truly rewards me.

This Cattleya Orchid is blooming for the first time in my garden
followed with the Bromeliad bloom
Truly natures wonder.
These are part of my hanging garden.
