Spring is coming

Hi all

The weather is getting better and better here in the south of Sweden. Some of my plants the need some extra light and cool nights has been moved out of the greenhouse and in to the conservatoire.

Here is a nice Neofinetia falcata that get more sun light.

Vanda Miss Joaquim doesn't flower without direct sunlight. 

Ascocentrum curvifolium, normal form to the left and the luteum form to the right setting multiple spikes now.

Vanda coeruleas are enjoying the brighter light and cooler nights .
This plant of Vanda testacea is spiking for the first time.

Last but not least, one of my Ascocentum garayi is now getting ready to flower with seven spikes! :-)

Ascocentrum christensonianum

My christensonianum is now in flower with tree spikes. The plants has grown well since it was taken out of the flask in 2003. It is now 6 or 7 plants and as you can see it is grown on a cork slab and sprayed daily with a mild solution of fertilizer. It has not been given high lights but I think that it would flower even better in a brighter  position.
