Orchids fascinate me; it is the centre of the bloom that is always striking. This is an Orchid I rescued a couple of years ago from B&Q costing the princely sum of 50 pence. It was so bedraggled I really didn't think it would survive, but for ten bod including a ceramic pot I figured it didn't owe me anything.

It now repays me with fantastic blooms almost through the whole year.

I am hoping to get some Keiki's from this plant so that I can give them as presents; I had a successful crop last year which increased my stock sufficiently to delight my friends at Christmas.

Once again many thanks for your continued support and Diane [fefe] for her mod and the abundance of very helpful advice.

I have of course played around with this a little V2 being the original........... I hope you enjoy

Good work Tish, and also in rejuvenating and propagating the plant... I don't think any of ours ever survive once they've finished flowering Sad

Unfortunately Alfie I wasn't having fun; just a problem sleeping; trying to give up smoking and I think sleep problems are one of the side effects.

Its nice Tish, and you know that the aperture you used was too large, - f/8 would have given you real detail and sharpness, but you would have to also go to ISO 400 to get the same amount of light. A noisy sharp shot if better than a clean soft shot.
