Hello everyone-- just wanted to share my latest blooms.

The first one is a Brassia and I just got it-- so the blooms aren't my doing. But this is my first attempt at growing this type of orchid-- its nice to see blooms right away. The its named after the village on Oahu where it was born and raised.

My next one is a Phal, 'Dalmatian'. I love this one and its blooming for the first time for me. I was concerned about this plant as I thought it might have a virus-- but it turns out, the spots are reserved for the blooms. The leaves, when the light shines brightly through them, are very spotty. Also, the spike has various spots as well. But when the blooms open, you see why.

I'm addicted to orchids! Arg!
