While doing some work around the yard, we needed to bring this orchid in so it would not get damaged. The shoot was over4 feet long!

What a beauty! I grew a Dendrobium orchid on my balcony when I lived in San Francisco. When it became too cool outside, I would bring it in, but it absolutely thrived in the moist climate with very little care. If I remember correctly, the blooms would remain for more than a month. I always had to prop up the little pot it grew in so that the long stalks of flowers wouldn’t tip it over. My plant had yellow blooms though, instead of white.

Amazing flower!! And beautiful. You have the perfect set-up there for Pam’s flowers. And when they are outside, hanging from the trees, look so natural.
BTW, how was the tomato crop this year? :)
