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.

    There are no zones with different rules in Moscow, but still it was impossible to guess in spring what was or wasn't allowed to do; and now the situation is only a little better. Seems it happens in…

    Thank you! I may try it later today then.

    My sourdough also isn't big on the doubling in size - and it does make good bread. I think you can probably give bread a go.

    I'm not sure whether we were in Tier 1 or 2 at that point...

    LOL. Yeah, I've given up all hope of making sense of these shifty weird rules.

    Love all the waterside encounters!

    Wow! We get huge aircraft carriers in Brooklyn occasionally but I have never shared the water with one.
