New growth springs in fall

Orchid flower shoot

Orchid flower shoot

There isn’t a whole lot to show off outside, aside from piles of leaves and thickets of dead plants. But inside, my orchid is sending up a new flower stalk. As I mentioned last March, every year, It puts out a new leaf, and then it puts up a flower shoot.

Usually when it puts out a new leaf, the oldest leaf falls off. This year, it actually held on, so it went from three to four leaves. Big whoop, I know, but now I think it means the plant is getting strong and I wonder what this winter’s flowers will be like. Give it a couple months.
