Observations and images describing my orchid-growing hobby and the process I use to bring miniature orchids into blossom.

Broughtonia cubensis is a Cuban native cattleya-like sympodial epiphyte with lightly fragrant small blossoms. This is a second blooming for my plant. It grows in direct sun which is supplemented with a 65 watt compact florescent bulb for those dim days. I water/fertilize it daily.
We are Bluegreen Vacation Club owners that enjoy vacations in new areas and getting involved doing new activities. For Ross, this usually includes photography--especially local flora. For both of us, this includes sampling the local food and shopping. We are always looking for that perfect dessert as well as another hat or t-shirt or, perhaps, a candle or two.
