>More happy orchids
>Today was just the right weather to show off my awesome double flowers on the Phalaenopsis bellina:
Outdoors, all the plants prepare for winter, while indoors everybody gets busy growing.
This flowerstalk in the making:
If this was a fairy-tale, one could probably pull one of the delicate layers very gently and hold an enchanted red robe in ones hands:
(Too much of „Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel“, I know…)
This little orchid is in full growing-mode, it blooms:
From the stem grows either a new root or maybe a new stalk:

hi there I have just bought my first orhicd, after moving into my flt in Seoul. It is a yellow Phal. I watered her once or twice a week and placed her on my window sill which does not ever receive direct sunlight, but does have light all day.It seemed fine the first week with about 6 lovely blooms then within a few days all the blooms dropped off and the stem started turning yellow.As you may have figured I am a complete novice but I love my orhicd! I am looking at the care pointers on your site and want to know if I am right in saying that I need to water her more and change her location?Please help me I would love to care for her properly!
Hi, no worries about your plant’s behaviour. Most orchids do not like to be moved (as it happens when you bring them home from a gardener or flowershop) and need quite a while until they „feel at home“ in a new place. Many of mine have done this, too, and thrown the flowers early. The plant needs time and normal care and after a while it will rebloom. Then the flowers will last much longer. You will need some patience, though, it may take a while until the orchid likes to bloom again, orchids are slow growers.
