Summer Orchids Care

June 13, 2019

“Heat stress is a condition that occurs in orchids and other plants when excessive heat causes an imbalance in transpiration, the process by which moisture evaporates from the plant’s tissues. When that rate of evaporation exceeds the pace at which moisture is being replaced through water taken up by the orchid’s roots, the plant becomes dehydrated — leaves soft and wilted, pseudobulbs wrinkled and ridged.” -AOS

Summer is here and it is time when you need to keep eye on your orchid placement and hydration. Be aware of dehydration and hit stress signs.

Last week I rescue one orchid which was planted in soil with black mulch and had sun burns on the lives. Ones again I realized that there are many people who does not know a bit about orchids care.

So sad to see that…any questions could be answered by simple internet search. YouTube is a great resource to use for any questions.

Couple tips for these who might find my post here and interested to learn a little bit about orchids care.

Different media and type of pots responding differently to water and heat. Clay pots, leca and lava rocks dries faster that bark, coconut husk and moss in plastic pots. Plastic pots should be placed into the cover pots to prevent the root burns.

If you see shriveled, desiccated yellowing leaves or reddish-purple tint or freckles it can indicate underwatering, sunburn or overheating dehydration. This may simply be due to the fact that you are not providing enough water for the orchid-pot-media-location combination or plant is under the heat stress.

I you noticed any signs of dehydration or sun burn first move plant to shaded location, than soak it with pot in clean water (distilled, rain) for 20-30 min. Start to water the plant more frequently but make sure all water dripped of the pot at the end, and roots are not sitting in water.

Orchid can show the similar signs of dehydration because of the poor roots condition which cannot transmit the water. This is another case and usually the result of overwatering, or old broken-down potting media which compacted around the roots. If orchid wasn’t re-potted for more than 2 years, consider checking the roots and repot it.

Summer is here! Just be aware of your plants condition and grow your orchids strong for future blooms.

Feel free to leave a comment or any questions you have.

Let’s talk Orchids

June 6, 2019

If you are new to the Orchids’ lovers world you probably would need to understand the terms people use all over the internet when talking about Orchids.

When I started to learn about Orchids it was very confusing to recognize what people are referring to by saying: keiki, crown, spike, backbulb, etc. It’s like a different language. I decide to put some information together which might help one to better understand these terms.  Here is some of the terms and definitions you may see people using when talking about orchids:

Orchids, Aerial Root

Aerial Root– a root which develops from the stem above the medium.

Orchids, Flower Spike

Flower Spike– a single or branched stalk with buds and flowers.

Orchids, Crown

Crown: the area where the leaves join with the base of the plant. Spikes and roots come from from crown for Sympodial Orchids.

Orchids, Happy Sap

“Happy Sap”: small beads of sticky sap that appear on parts of an orchid. In the absence of insects, this means that the plant is happy and is sending sugar to the area of the plant where the sap is visible. The presence of this sap can indicate that the orchid is gearing for reproduction.

Orchids, Rhizome

Rhizome: horizontal, underground plant stem capable of producing the shoot and root systems of a new plant.

Orchids, Side shoot

Side shoot: a new spike that sprouts from the node of an already established flower spike. Often produces more blooms.

Orchids, Backbulb

Backbulb: an old, often leafless, sympodial pseudobulb that is still alive and can be used for propagating a new plant.

NOID: an acronym for “no identification”. This is used for any orchid whose exact species is unknown. Most orchids available for sale at big box stores are NOID.

Sympodial orchids: such as Oncidiums, Cattleyas, Zygopetalums grow new pseudobulb from rhizome horizontally.

Monopodial orchids: such as Phalaenopsis, Vanda grow new leaves vertically from the stem.

Ukraine in War!

September 10, 2014

I want to share with you some information.

I just came back from Ukraine, Kiev this weekend. As you probably know Ukraine is in war provoking by Russia. It is real war- my friend’s kids are in a war zone- fighting and my friends’ families are praying to keep them alive.
My heart was so touched that I decided to do what I can from here and help as much as possible these volunteers’ soldiers who are fighting the terror.
A small group of people I know in Kiev are helping volunteered soldiers at ATO/ Anti-Terrorist Operation zone. It’s real people- real help.
I started the fundraising site and hope it will go on. PLEASE share this information with friends and if possible donate some money with good comments to inspire other people to do the same.

Here is the site
Greatly appreciated for any help.
Please take care.
Help Ukraine fight terror

Help Ukraine

September 10, 2014



Everyone knows now that Ukraine is in war provoking by Russia.

This is a most perilous time in the history of Ukraine. Dozens of ordinary civilians and soldiers have been killed, and thousands have been seriously injured. Many require urgent medical treatment including neurosurgery, restoration of eyesight, and treatment of burns, broken limbs and other grievous bodily injuries. Kyiv’s hospitals are overstretched and are unable to provide full treatment to all those who need help.

“Volunteer Hundreds” delivers medications and first aids directly to soldiers on the fields. – See more at:

Real face of Jesus?

March 31, 2010

I saw today on the news the episode about Real Face of Jesus. They were featuring the work of computer artist who recreated the face of Jesus in 3D based on the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth many people believe wrapped the body of Jesus after the crucifixion. I think it’s unreal to get the face from that cloth.

I have one painting and can name it The Face of Jesus as well.

Here we are – what do you think?


2007 is the Year of the “Golden Pig” in the traditional Chinese lunar calendar.

The lunar calendar gives each year one of 12 zodiac signs with years rotating through the five elements – Gold, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Each combination, as “Golden Pig” year, occurring once every 60 years.

Believed that a person born in the “Golden Pig” year will be blessed with great fortune all through his/her life.

Several families of my friends had participated in “Golden Pig” lucky baby project.
