2012 February Flowers

2012 February Flowers,

Another wet month, everything growing well, lots of flowers.

Had to do a lot of pruning as plants are doing so well and getting so big, some of the larger plants at the back are starting to encroach so I foresee quite a bit of pruning coming up in the near future.

Plants that flowered this month are, Aspasia lunata, Bulbophyllum sinapsis, Brassoepidendrum Hybrids, Cattleya bowringiana ‘Black Prince’, Cat bowringiana fma coerulea, Cattleytonnia Hybrid, Ceratostylis retisquama, Coelogyne ovalis fma alba, Dendrobium lawesii fma bicolor, Den monophyllum, Den mutabile, Den sanguinolentum, Den secundum, Dendrochilum latifolium, Epidendrum haematum, Jumellea cormorense, Miltonia regnelii, Neobenthamia gracilis, Oncidium Gower Ramsey ‘Jungle Queen’, Polystachya galeata, Spathoglottis paulineae, Zygonaria Adelaide Lights.

All photos can be found under their respective categories else ware on the site.
