    Why am I up so early?! This hour is unfit for carbon-based life forms...

    Oh yes, Lady Gwendolyn landed on the railing outside my bedroom window just a moment ago.

    So, how is the blooming going? Pictures?

    Was it just starting to grow a spike, or were blooms out?

    My new red-fuchsia-ish colored orchid came with three spikes blooming, one just buds (that one is opening now), two definite spikes, and two potential spikes (they appear to be preparing to grow, but I'm not holding my breath). I have no clue what kind this one is, too.

    The dendrobium's remaining buds are getting larger, so they'll open soon.

    It's about that time of the year when Lc. Secret Love blooms again, so hopefully I'll get it down here before it starts sending up spikes. Two months without my care might take a toll on the blooming schedule, though. We'll see, they're trying to care for them...

    This is Lc Secret Love, which has bloomed for me 2-3 times a year (roughly every 4-5 months) since I bought it (the rest have been far less prolific bloomers, but I believe this is mainly a light issue):

    Nice Phalaenopsis! It's even one with the branching spikes.

    I never had good luck with those, but I might get one again sometime, now that I have a house with better lighting. I tend to prefer plants where I don't need to stake the flower spikes, too, so I'm planning on building some wall mounts, then I'll be able to grow a phalaenopsis more naturally.

    Thanks. I got it for a Christmas present. It's sitting in the east window now, and seems content.

    In 2006, or 2005? If 2006, I'm quite curious what the name of the hybrid is, because I've never seen one that wanted to bloom more than once a year.

    2006. I don't have the name for it, sorry.

    Says it's from some Green Valley greenhouse in MN, though, if that's at all helpful.

    Yeah, it's rare that they mark orchids unless you buy them from a proper tropical nursery or orchid grower. Most that you get anywhere else are unmarked (like the two I just got that are driving me mad because I don't know what they are).

    I'm impressed by two periods of blooming in one year from that type of orchid!

    Oh yes:

    I'm dementedly bored, but I don't feel like sleeping right now. I wanted to keep working, but I had to go home because the last person with the codes was leaving. I hate coming home from work sometimes.

    I can remember a time when I hated leaving work on Friday afternoons. I hated the thought of having to wait 2 whole days until I could go back again.
