Stunning! And so many blooms on a “re-bloomer”. I have been able to get re-blooms, but never quite so many. I requested and got quite a few new orchids for my birthday in May and they have just now finally dropped the last of their flowers, except for one that still has a few. Unfortunately, somehow I got mealy bugs on one and before I knew it, the ugly critters had spread to most of the plants.

I managed to keep them living, but can’t seem to eradicate the pests! I think I may have to get rid of all and sterilize the pots, too!! I’m sick about it.

Hi CeeCee, Have you done soapy water? Sometimes you need to just cut bait and start over. I know it hurts but don’t prolong the agony if it’s a losing battle. Pitch them and start over. Leslie
