What's currently flowering in my garden

These NOID hybrids are fairly common here in Singapore but I have a rather big soft spot for them as they almost always in flower, adding some colour to the garden when the species orchids are not in season:

Phal NOID. It does well in 50% shade and is kept moist in sphag (watered everyday):


Dendrobium NOID. This one gets about 30% shade, watered every other day if the weather is not too hot:


Here is a species orchid which came into flower last week. It has a light frangrance but the flowers are quite short-lived, whithering after 4-5 days.

Eria javanica. 50% shade, watered every day. Potted in coco husk and LEICA:


The Dendrobium "Milo" and Enc.cochleata are still in bloom - 5 weeks and counting! They seem quite happy growing in a breezy bright in-direct light environment as they are pushing up new growths.

Finally, the Dendrobium tampangii looks to be pushing out a new bud. Unfortunately I've not had too much luck with this one - the last two buds blasted just before they opened. Does anyone here have any pointers on this one? I suspect it needs to dry out a little before flowering and have cut down the frequency. Let's see how it goes... *fingers crossed* Here is a pic from the last successful bloom:



cheers

very pretty! i especially like the Phal your Den - it's a compact version, right? i think these are sold her as NOID compact growers and they are very lovely.
