|We came from here. http://cubits.org/orchids/thre...|
Cym. Nut 'Red Beauty' continues to fill the cool room with a Chinese cym scent. I surely do love it!
The white mini phal. with all buds open.
Here are two that arrived today.
Cym. Dorothy Stockstill "Forbidden Fruit'.
And Slc. Hsiang-Yu Red Pearl 'Red Dragonfly.'
They are new both divisions and their roots are not established so I hope they start growing new ones!

this smells like roses.
Vandas opening everywhere here..this one smells like roses and mothballs mixed together. ha!

|Both fab and who knew they had a great scent? However, this Max. picta smells like band aids! |

|Kathy, at least your Max picta is blooming. All those new green "things" my plant was busy producing, are now beautiful new growth. No hint of any buds.|
I like the Cym. Dorothy Stockstill 'Forbidden Fruit'.
Bree, blooming Vandas is always a good thing! I suppose you could do without Moth-ball scent.
My Lc Rojo is putting on a nice Show right now. 2 good spikes this year.
And - ripped out of the teeth of the Orchid undertaker a few years ago and never very happy - this is my Aerangis citrata which has decided to grow a bit better and actually liked the spot right over the fish tank so much, that it is opening two modest spikes.

|Beauties! That Aerangis looks pretty happy!|
Mar 19, 2011 9:34 AM CST
|That's great news-both. I just hope the chopped up roots on my new red guy, a child of Rojo, looks as great someday! And my Aer. citrata is going downhill so maybe I need a fishtank pronto! Off to a hefty tragic opera for the day...|

|Ursula, both of those flowers are beautiful and how gratifying that you figured out|
a winning strategy for your Aerangis citrata!

|I'm going tomorrow, Jo. It's a bit bigger than the Amherst show but smaller than New Hampshire and the Cape shows. Info on shows is here. http://cubits.org/orchids/thre...|

|Let me know if you would like to car pool. And thanks for drawing my attention to the right forum. |

Lindsey, good looking Phaius. Is it a large plant?
Mar 19, 2011 5:00 PM CST
|Jo I'll send you a c-mail.|
Nice pic of the phaius Lindsey.

|Thanks guys! Ursula, this plant is 33 inches from the table top to the top of the spike.|
I got 3 bulbs..tubers...what ever in a DG trade last summer, the other two are putting
out growth but no spikes.

|You did good at that round up, LIndsey. I really like that Phaius.|
Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."

|That's a really neat photo Lindsey. I like the way you captured the light.|
Mar 19, 2011 7:08 PM CST
I wait for the sun to hit a spot on the living room floor, I set the plant there and the background just disappears!
Tah dah...it's magic!
You can't beat the natural light..I still haven't read my camera manual...and all of my pictures are totally automatic
settings,only once in a while are the colors washed out from being over exposed..
