I went to the meeting today and took pics of the show table. We all discussed our orchids and asked questions.

I brought my Cym. sinense, Slc. Newberry 'Elf', Phal. lueddemanniana, Sarco. Elizabeth 'Red Beauty', and Eplc. Pixie Charm. The Chinese cym was a hit.

I had some wonderful talks with members and hope a few will stop by here and say hello!

And I bought Cattleya Easter Bunny. A tall catt. with lots of buds that colors up over time (pic looked lavender to pink).

Kathy, beautiful pics, as always... what is the name of the first one on the third row? I really like it... I like aromatica a lot too, at least it give us a sense of appreciation to have winters to grow it:)

I love Den unicum, killed mine many moons ago, I'd like to try it again some day...

Wow, it's more beautiful than I could remember... before it could bloom, I sent mine along with bellina, schilleriana and some hybrids to orchid heaven years ago... what is the trick to grow Phals, they obviously don't agree with my growing conditions...

Me too!!
The only place I can keep Phals alive and maybe even blooming is in the living room or kitchen window. As soon as I bring them into the greenhouse, they slowly go downhill..... Thumbs down

Well Ursula, at least you can bloom them in your living room and kitchen window... I kill them shortly after they come live with me! so as much as I love Phal species, I no longer buy them... It's shame because I really want an equestris now...
