Hi,
My Name is Noel Soler and I'm an orchid hobbyist from the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico.
This is my first post and browsing your site I know I’m going to learn a lot from all your members and if I can helped with something let me know.

Thanks Ken for introducing me to this site.

Welcome to the Orchid thread, Noel. Those are some nice looking blooms you have there. Do you have names for them?

Welcome and wow! You look like more than a hobbyist. Those are marvelous flowers. I love the display frame (3rd photo down). Is the bottom photo a Cycnodes?

Welcome! Noel. Remember in our earlier "conversations" I told you that the ATP members would love to see pictures and also EXPECT to have names with those orchids. Whistling

Oh, I still think I can ship out those orchids tomorrow or Tuesday. You should get them by the end of the week (if our USPS cooperates).
