Show off your orchids in bloom - pics
#1
I couldn't find a similar thread on here, so I thought I'd start one. Orchids are actually what got me into the frog hobby in the first place. I was researching how to set up a terrarium to grow species that wouldn't be very well-suited to grow in my outdoor environment, and I came across all these frog forums.

I tend to choose orchids that are odd, have interesting biological features, etc. over those that are extremely flashy. Most of my collection are minis from either the cloud forests of Central and South America, Madagascar and tropical Africa, and Papua New Guinea. Here are a few flowers from my collection, feel free to post your in bloom orchids in this thread as well. I'll update it from time to time as more things come into bloom.

Random, do you have any orchids currently? I've got a few easy ones (probably wouldn't do well in vivs, but would probably bloom under the lights if potted) that I can divide. Send me a PM if you're interested.

Chris, what's the Bulbo? Something like fascinator or lasiochilum? I've never had much look with Masdies. Yours are definitely putting on a show!

Im not sure. A local gave it to me. I thought they told me it was a lady's slipper but not 100% sure. Those masdies in that tank are thriving!!!! They seem to like the really damp conditions in their.

I've got three orchids at the moment. Two potted (both FL natives) and one in a viv. Can not for the life of me remember their names but I do have them all written down. Have only had them for a couple months. Two of the three are showing new growth (especially the one in the viv) and I can't even tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing some blooms...hell I'm stoked on new leaves.

Chris, it's definitely a Bulbo of some sort. It looks like maybe Bulb. Sheryl Kurizaki to me. Those Masdies do look good!

Random, I find many of the Florida natives very interesting. The native Epidendrums/Encyclia are very nice. If you get around to it, post the names. I may be able to put you on the right track to blooms, but it sounds like you're doing well already. New growths are the first step to flowers.

I also was searching terrariums online and came across dart frogs and was surprised to see them available. I was so fascinated and that started me on another ongoing online subject search.
I haven't tried orchids in the viv as of yet, but I just ordered a Bulbophyllum and its on its way.

Keep the photos coming and any other tips on viv suited orchids would be great. Smile

Awesome!! I love the B. longicaudatum, is it suited for the vivarium?

It should be, as long as there's at least a little air circulation inside. You might want to look for Bulbophyllum masdevallaceum if you like longicaudatum. B. longicaudatum is next to impossible to find commercially and is quite expensive when you do find it.

As of the last few weeks, got a bloom on a cheap Lowes Orchid. This plant is about 3 yrs+ and a consistent bloomer.

One I have on my table by my pool for 11 years, I was told it would get huge but keeping it in the same pot for 11 years has prevented that.

Not very colorful but interesting flowers, 2 times a year I get nice sprays that last a good month or so.
