    I have 2 Phaelenopsis, 1 Brassia, 2 Dendrobiums and 1 Cattleya. The Brassia blooms every year for me, the one Dendrobium is now in bloom for the first time since I rescued it at home depot 5 yrs ago, the other is a kieke from a dendrobium that was half dead at home depot and its to small to bloom. the others I've never gotten to bloom. My Dendrobium in the pic looks red in the bright sun but its really purple & white. It was taken when the first 2 flowers were open, Its got 2 more to open yet for a total of 7 flowers on the only spike.

    They're beautiful, sure do like brassias but can't seem to get them to bloom each year, have a 'sharry babie', a cattleya and a miltonia in bloom now. Will post a pic if i can figure out how.--shu
