New leaves, bulbs, roots, buds, and stems - got them all!

Ah, the happiness of owning orchids! I attached some pictures of what some of my orchids are up to right now. It's so nice too see new growth of any sort.

Picture #1: My Cym. Lady Sheridan "Shearwater" has new growth well under way!

Picture #2: Onc. Sharry Baby "Sweet Fragrance" has plump bulbs and bright green leaves. I love this baby Sharry Baby! It's in a 2" pot.

Picture #3: My rescue Phal noid is not going to suffer from poor root system much longer! New leaf is also emerging, all shiny and firm.

Pictures #4,5: My gift Phal noid is growing a new leaf and a flower stem. I can feel its happiness!

Picture #6: Dtps. Lennestad has buds developing on two flowerstems off an old pair of flowerstems. I just harvested some pods off the old stems. A new leaf is also growing well.

Pictures #7,8: A newest Phal noid is monsterous in size and blooming right now! The flower stem is 80 cm (2.6 feet) long. It is a secondary spike with 6 blooms, each 12-13 cm (~5 inches) wide! It has earned a nickname "Nopszilla". I just noticed that the very tip of the flower stem has opened up and seems to grow something - perhaps a keiki??!!!

You have some nice things going on
The last pic is the end of the flower spike may develop more buds or may not or even sometimes become sub spikes (not sure about ones on the end like that but have seen it more cental area of spike)
Good growing !!
