Time for a new thread. Sorry wasn't watching the numbers!!! We came from http://cubits.org/orchids/thread/view/14227/#new_post
My Broughtonia sanguinea 'Splash Basket' arrived today. Looks fine except for some salt residue on the leaves.

Lindsey, I impressed with the plants you manage to find at Lowe's. The Alcra. Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold' is so pretty with the gold and peach.

Thanks Susan,
The photograph doesn't do it justice..funny how some colors are more difficult to capture than others!
I tried again today with different lighting and it's still not right.

The department manager and the live nursery specialist at Lowe's are very supportive and helpful in my
acquisition of more different varieties. They make sure the mix is more than phals, as they know I have a
bunch of them already.
I am very envious of everyone that is able to go to shows and greenhouses and purchase wonderful plants,
I sometimes feel depressed that I am limited to Lowe's or online purchases. Luckily for me the guys at Lowe's
give me a very special price on these plants , and that helps!!

If it was Sharry Baby, you would smell it! I think those flowers are too large in any case.

Well they were nice enough to both call and email an answer to my last noid picture of one of their plants
so fingers crossed, I'll get the same excellent service!
The flowers aren't really very large, maybe an inch or so. The spikes are tall though..29 inches from the top
of the sphagnum.

Phew! I looked at that one!! We would have been bidding against each other. I gave mine to Laurel (because it never bloomed again) and I have too many cyms now, so I didn't bid! You'll love it!

Alright, you guys got to me. There isn't an orchid show around here for another month, so I broke down and went to my nearest Lowes this morning. The sale rack didn't have anything I would bring home, but some body at that store finally got a clue! They had a good selection of Gubler orchids soooo...

Nice Carol!
Did they come in the bark chips or did you already perform the desphagnumectomy?
