Und die anderen basteln fleissig an neuen Trieben und Knospen.
Die größte Überraschung war die hier- eine von meinen Mini Marks, die nach einem durchblühten Winter ziemlich in den Seilen hingen. Anscheined gefällt ihnen die Anreicherung des Substrats mit Moos, sie waren ja schon immer eher durstige Pflanzen. Jetzt macht eine ein neues Blatt und die andere:
Some are already in bloom as shown above.
Others work busily on new spikes and buds. The biggest surprise was one of my Mini Marks, though. After those had bloomed on stubbornly all winter through, they were kinda spent toward the February. I gave them a wellness-treatment by adding some Spaghnum moss to their substrate (because they are pretty thirsty – don’t do that with plants that prefer it more on the dry side!) and apparently they like it well. One of them makes a new leaf and the other the spike pictured above.
And on the last two pictures my best growing orchids, who keep going unerringly and grow apart from leaves and roots now also a spike each.
(The spike of the Phal. Mashimo (the larger one) will be fixed to the rod with something less obvious once it has finished growing. Currently it is so tender still, though, that anything harder than the cushioned wire used here would leave dents and scratches.)
