|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...|

|For me, good drainage has changed my cycles of death!|

|You know what Kathy, they were mounted!!! I know it's me, a Phal killer... lol...|

|Oh I kill them mounted 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.....

|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...|
