Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) & Orchids

My amaryllis has put forth a bud, and is in the process of putting forth another. I really must pot her on. The poor little soul has been in the same compost 3 years now, I think. Having said that, I wonder if the poor soil is encouraging blooming, because she didn't flower last year, whereas this year has definitely been a year of poverty for her.

I've run out of Baby Bio too, so although I fed her when I saw she was starting to bud, all she has is orchid food. I fear I am an Abusive Bulb Owner...

All the Phalaenopsis orchids are budding and blooming once more, though I don't think there are quite as many flower stems as last year. The Miltonia did make a flower bud, but somehow managed to get it stuck inside one of its own leaves, the daft thing, and broke its own neck!

She did rebloom last year though, so I am hopeful she might manage it again. Looking back over this journal I see that in December last year, Miltonia was not showing any buds, so it's still early days.
