Lovely, your orchids are so healthy. What is the mean temps in the UK these days ? Are you misting them daily ?

Orchids are best in tropical areas , but Jubail is not one of these, so we provide artificial temp control indoors, yes the orchid is growing bigger , i need a bigger pot for it now, for me it is very care free plant and i recommend everyone to try atleast one time this magnificiant Plant.
