Not only are the little putty root orchid shoots growing like mad, but today some of them are showing interior magenta seed-like flower buds (I am guessing here). What really interests me is how different each shoot is. After drawing them so much I can now recognize them as individuals, even though they change each day. The more I look the more I can see. I had thought 9649 was going to die since it had been chomped on; but it continues to grow in spite of being very short compared to the others; it even is among the first to show some magenta.
