New bulb growing on sophronitis cernua

New growth on sophronitis cernua

     My sohpronitis cernua has been producing many new roots, and what looks like the start of a new pseudobulb.  I've been waiting for the growth to get big enough that I'd be able to take a decent picture of it.  Since the new roots show up with salad-green tips and this bud is a deep green, I am pretty confident that it is a pseudobulb.

A slightly closer view

     The image above is about as close as my camera can get before all focus is lost.  The image does show that the mature pseudobulbs seem to have smooth unwrinkled sides.  I'll take that as indication that the orchid is doing well.
