New Orchid!

Maxillaria Sophronitis

This is my new orchid that I got from my brother for my birthday. I was pretty excited when I came home yesterday and saw the package. I didn’t know I was getting one! This is the first orchid of this species that I have. I’m very excited to see what the blooms look like. I believe that red thing on the plant is the flower spike. I can’t wait to see what it looks like! I will be posting more pictures as it grows! 😀

I may eventually be able to divide this plant as it gets bigger but that won’t be for a long while. One of my phals is also growing more flowers on a flower spike that has already bloomed. I’ve never had that happen before but I have read about it happening. I will share those pictures also once it blooms.

This weekend I will also be repotting a few of my orchids which should be fun. A few of them definitely need it. I also have a huge lucky bamboo plant that is in a planter with two other orchids. I need to figure out what I want to repot it in at some point. Although I could leave it in the planter it’s in with just one other orchid. I guess it’ll just have to be something that I’ll figure out when the times comes.
