All three orchids are growing new branches.

Can someone please post a picture of a non-blooming orchid. Somehow I thought they were vine like but now I'm wondering if I am mistaken in what the plant itself looks like. I could sure use some help on this one.

Do you want a photo of just the leaves without a blooming branch, or with a branch that hasn't bloomed yet? The branches don't really vine, but they do need to be staked.

I don't have an orchid with a stem without blooms, but here are 2 different types of orchids with just leaves.

I love that one pot it is fantastic.

My orchids are much smaller than yours. One creates like bambo stems and the leaves are only about an inch long. The other one is like the one you have in the pretty pot but again the leaves are very short. Kind of like a dwarf of yours.

Thankyou so much for showing me your pictures. I guess it means they won't be big enough to bloom this year either.

The one that looks like bamboo is probably a Dendrobium. They are actually canes and don't cut off the old ones!

That one has 4 new "canes?" and the old cane is still green. It just doesn't have any leaves on it. It also gets the psedo bulbs on the bottom when it stores water.

Thanks for the information about it.
