Orchids with flower spikes & their stories – Updates and thoughts

Today we take a look at some orchids which have flower spikes or buds and talk about them and other things orchid related!
More info below!

Dendrobium venustum is finally flowering! I got this one 3 years ago, check it out here https://youtu.be/NughW6R-RrU

I don’t know much about this orchid, so this website helped http://www.orchidspecies.com/denvenustum.htm

I think a separate video on how to care for unknown orchids is a good idea

Howeara Lava Burst looks very similar with a NoID Oncidium I got earlier this year! Here is how the orchid looked like when I repotted it https://youtu.be/VY95PKtuA8Y

Diacattleya Chantilly Lace ‘Twinkle’ is indeed growing a flower spike, but there are no buds in sight! The spike grows as a stem first and then the buds will form

My NoID Paphiopedilum that I received from my viewer is still here! Look how it used to look like https://youtu.be/yMStm85l9tY even though I almost lost him https://youtu.be/C_OXAn6HQ5c
