|Dendrobium. Their growing condition is similar as Cattleyas.|
I have been growing orchids for 15+ years now. In 2008, I took my first lesson in Sogetsu Ikebana. For me, growing orchids and creating Ikebana arrangements are my meditation. I created this blog to share my pictures and ideas with you. It is like my journal and helps me keep track of my progress.

This orchid needs to be repotted or divided. Its roots are so crowded,
this is the reason there are not as many flowers as previous years. (1/14/2013)
|Oncidium. Sunlight " Hilo Honey"|
The stems are so tall but it's not enough
flowers. I think it has a bit of malnutrition.
