Re: must be spring...


i don't know, sally ann. mine are in the ground [moist, sandy soil and semi-shady] and have adapted well to those conditions. you're a tad farther north than i am, but you're also under influence of the gulf stream, so it's worth trying them in the ground.

the one sending up the bloom spikes now is a phaius [nun's cap]; it's always the first to come to life. the spathoglottis will start to bloom in a month or so and go on into late november. the spaths are really better adapted to my yard; three plants have multiplied over the years to cover about 6 square feet. i haven't checked on the jewel orchids because i've forgotten where i put them {:>(
