Thanks all! The other one came from an open house at Palmers not too long after I got this one at Lowe's. I keep track of my 'inventory' with an App. for my phone...and as soon as I got the Lowe's plant , I corrected the name....so when I saw it at Palmer's ( with the incorrect name) it didn't look like I already had it....ooooooppsee! I'll have to look for the Palmer's plant and see what it's doing.

Very nice, Lindsey! As long as this is a seedling and not a mericlone, you could give it whatever clonal name you wanted - 'Freckles' (Patty), 'Cute Spotty' (Ursula), 'Stars at Night' (Bill), etc. especially if you were going to exhibit it.

More about italics.
Current issue of the Orchid Digest has an article about Paphiopedilum delenatii. The species and two forms of the species, 'albinum' and 'vinicolor' are in italics. Albinum is all white with a yellow staminode and vinicolor has a deeper purpley pouch much darker than the typical bubble gum pink.
Paphiopedilum delenatii f. vinicolor, all three are in italics, excepting the "f".
Same for Paphiopedilum delenatii f. albinum.
Article was written by a world class Paphiopedilum grower/ breeder / lecturer Harold Koopowitz. Shrug!
Food for thought and I am always hungry!!! Rolling on the floor laughing I tip my hat to you.

Beautiful Carol! All except the zygo in Lindsey's 'rum punch' colors! The zygo in my personal favorite of purple is gorgeous, well worth the wait! Nice job!

All very pretty Carol! I tip my hat to you.
Goodness, a William Farrell with eight flowers is fantastic. Very pretty.
Cernua is just like a precious little jewel. I love how it grows with these
small rounded bulbs topped by a thick roundish leaf! Thanks for posting those! Hurray!

'Blue Birds' never opened as much as I'd like, but after two months of looking at the buds, it finally got enough sun to open a bit. It has a new spike as well.

Love the shadings on the seagulls x there, and the blue on that Zygo is just amazing. Nice blooms, Carol.

I forgot to mention the scent on The Pot. Almost knocked me over when I opened the door to the shack this morning. The poor Zygonesia has had all the Zygo scent bred out of it, but it doesn't mind the 39 and 40s temps on the porch....just needs better sun. I know you on the east coast have had some really crazy weather this past year, but that is the normal here, so the learning curve gets very wavy when trying to learn what/how/where to grow anything. I've lived in this county for 62 years, always gardened, and still haven't got a clue. Confused

We hear ya, Carol. I have over 40 years of gardening in 3 very different climates and really thought I'd seen it all. Just when you think you've got a handle on things, the weather changes. It's been so warm through the winters here, we really got a little bit complacent. Hadn't seen temps in the 30's for 7 years at least, so this winter the several cold snaps have really caught us with our pants down (as my mother used to say).

This one on the 18th that slammed Jim's garden so badly had wind along with very cold temperatures, and that made it harder to protect a lot of things. Frost cloth billowed, leaked and blew off the plants. I got lucky, because we had a couple of "rehearsals" down into the 40's in December and I'd cajoled my husband into making the hoop structure for me on the south side of his beloved shop. Turns out once it was covered, and then with a wind-proof tarp over the frost cloth, that structure blocked a lot more of the cold wind from getting to the rest of the garden. Who knew??

Elaine, you created your own micro climate. Thumbs up You are right about being complacent, I am in this minuscule strip of zone 9a that runs along the sea islands from Jacksonville to Charleston. It is so narrow you cannot even see it on the zone map. The Gulf Stream comes in close to shore here and the surrounding sea water is warmer which generally keeps us warm. But, there is 10 degrees difference in temperatures just 10 miles inland from here so that line of demarcation is fluky and easily swayed and it swayed the wrong way this year.

Carol, once we stop learning it will mean we have given up. NO WAY.

Just so you know, Ken, both 'Green Genie' and 'Green Genius' appear to be available clones. Blc-Yen-Corona-Green-Genie-is a peloric, whilst 'Green Genius' is not.


Very nice to know. I wasn't aware of that. I probably incorrectly assumed that there is a Village Chief North 'Green Genius', and a Yen Corona 'Green Genie', thinking that the name Yen Corona 'Green Genius' had been a mistake that some people made.

Anyway ---- does anybody know if any nursery in Australia stocks and sells the Yen Corona 'Green xxxxxxxx' plants? Village Chief North appears to be widely available in Australia --- different parentage than Yen Corona of course. I'm just trying to look for Yen Corona 'Green Genie' .... or ... since Yen Corona 'Green Genius' is meant to exist too ---- then looking for either form --- in Australia. Thanks!!!!

Welcome, @SouthPark_CO.

I am sorry, but I don't know a thing about Australian orchid growers. My plants (both 'Genie' and 'Genius') were purchased from an Hawaiian source, purchased in bulk at wholesale.

Welcome! @SouthPark_CO

I'm one of the few Orchid growers in Australia on the forum, I think. I don't know if any of the Australian nurseries have either of the two clones, but I can think of quite a few places you could try (depending on which state you are in). Will send you a list by treemail (private message).
