Stanhopeas are in blooms and buds

It the time of the year, when Stanhopea orchids are blooming now.
I have 13 plants in blooms and mainly Nigroviolacea and hybrids

Are your Stanbhopea in blooms or budding now?


Stanhopea Orchids and Possums

Like previous years, possums are back chewing the bulbs
and cutting off the leaves of stanhopea orchids in coconut baskets.

These possum do lots of damage. The only way is to hang them in open space
and prevent the possums from getting to these.

Anyone facing the same problems?
