Two out of my three orchids are full of buds. One is about a month ahead of the other, but with a little bit of luck, it will mean the flowering will seem to last longer because they will flower in sequence. They are (finally) on time. Gotten for Garry’s birthday two years running and last year, for me on my birthday, they have always bloomed in March and/or April.
Once they bloom, they will continue flowering for months and often they bloom a second time a few months later. This year, they missed the extra blooming, but they are right on time for spring.
Once they begin to flower, orchids are hardy. The most difficult part of growing them is not overwatering them, feeding them orchid food when they start to wake up, and waiting longer until finally, you see buds.
