    Two of my 3 Orchids are flowering again this year! :)

    The third is still a scape with hardly discernable buds at present.

            @Michael Hewett, Bougainvillea, I bought it at the Range 6 years ago and brightens up the conservatory for a long time.:smile:

              Yes, the Orchid on the living room table is doing very well! All the flowers have opened now & there are no more buds left to open.

              The one in the small kitchen window, over the sink, is flowering very well again, this is it's third repeat flowering with me! The reason why it is still in the kitchen window & not on the living room table where it can be admired is because of the ariel roots. My wife doesn't like them one little bit! She likes the flowers, but not the roots! What do you think of it in the photo below?

              You can see there is a third Orchid with just a bare scape at present. When the flowers open it will be the 4th time it's flowered, 3 times now with me!

                I must say the roots look a bit creepy @Balc :yikes: :heehee: but the flowers are pretty :smile:

                  This is one of its last two flowers. :(

                  This was the first to start to flower this year but that is now coming to an end. :(

                      I've had this Oxalis for a number of years. Although the flowers are nice, a bonus really, I principally grow it for its leaves. One reason I'm not greatly interested in the flowers is that they make such long stems they spend most of their time on the floor of the balcony!

                        Orchids (3) on living room table 16th June 2022.jpg
                        .
                        I now have all 3 of my Orchids flowering this year! I thought the one in the middle wouldn't make it in time before the flowers from the first white one fell off - but I needn't have worried as the smaller of the 2 whites is still flowering today 5 days later on the first day of summer 2022!
