Well it's been the best year I've had flowering these beauties, I've had at least 50 plants flowering with some flowering new ones constantly since August. I hope next year is this good and I have a few about to flower which haven't flowered before, it's been the best year ever....

A very nice collection. But tell me, are the ferns in the background growing in masdevallia pots? I always have ferns growing in my pots but I take them out.

The ferns in the background are growing in their own pots. I put them in their own pots when I am repotting my orchids, I seem to have a plague of them at the moment. One of the ferns you can see is growing in a Brassia pot and is bigger than the Brassia! I should take a photo to show you but shortly I will be repotting this one and removing the fern. You are right, the ferns should be removed and I do so regularly but try and keep them growing. I figure I might be able to sell ferns at orchid shows.......lol.

Very nice. Isn't it summer there, I would have thought it too hot for coccinea hybrid! :confused:
I have a coccinea (magenta) plant that is currently in spike. It can be to hot but we have strategies to work around that issue.

Rein Sun is so beautiful. I so wish I could grow these. My absolute favorite orchids, and I have the worst conditions for them.

Aren't most of those coccinea hybrids!? BTW, is "strategies" code word for expensive airconditioning and wet-pads!? :p

All I do is mist regularly in the mornings and make sure they don't get to much light. When the temps get to warm (over 90F) I bring them into my bathroom where they sit on the cool floor......when the temps cool down again I put them outside and start misting and watering again. I have a friend who when it's warm waters them a dozen times a day......I think that's crazy but he has plenty of time on his hands. It seems to work for him anyway.
