My mum's orchid (Phalaenopsis)

Hello Everyone,

I've attached a picture of a phalaenopsis orchid that my mum has been growing on my membrane diffusion watering system for about 6 months. When she first bought the orchid it was reduced in price and in a bit of a sorry state with quite a lot of leaf and flower damage. She cut it back more by instinct than knowledge and this is the resulting 2nd flowering. She has another two phalaenopsis on the go, both in good health but not flowering at the moment.


My mum is usually pretty handy with plants but she had never tried an orchid before. She claims it's all down to my invention but she is biased [grin]

That is beautiful, Chris! Your watering system is probably helping her a lot. There's no way your mother could be biased... [Big Grin]
