    Orchid nurseries/shows in Bay Area

    I would recommend visiting Hawk Hill and Hanging Gardens. The two businesses are close together in Pacifica. These are both small businesses operated by John Leathers and Bob Hamilton (HH), and Dan Newman (HG). Both collections are amazing in their variety. e.g. HH has plants of Masd...

    Dendrobium vexillarius

    I wanted to give a plug for Dan Newman/Hanging Gardens. http://hanginggardens.org/en/ I have seen good plants of all color varieties of this species at his greenhouse. Dan really has an amazing collection of cool growing rare species. JC

    kovachii "Bogotano"

    Color still looks very nice albeit a little lighter. I've found that small kovachii plants after flowering can crash, so I would cut the spike and grow it up. I would use the pollen as the quality is sufficient. That anguloi looks really nice too. JC

    kovachii "Bogotano"

    I think this one looks quite excellent. Full form, quite flat, dark color, excellent pouch color. My only minor criticism is the slight folding back on the petal bases. On a larger plant it should bloom better and may have somewhat better form. Flower quality also depends on flowering...

    OZ flask list including kovachii

    You are correct on the names. I guess I screwed up when I posted before. And yes, sometimes I refer to Big Boy as Big Guy.....but always big. :) It even bloomed better this year at least by my eye -- see FB below. So maybe Fat Boy. Sorry, they don't all have clonal names. One of the...

    OZ flask list including kovachii

    orders: orchidzoneusa@gmail.com We have a new batch of flasks. One highlight is that we now have seedlings of kovachii "Leonardo Andre" FCC/AOS X self for sale. kovachii in flask are tricky, and we have expended quite a bit of effort to make this successful. One note: I suspect that the...

    I sold but we don't enter plants. It is a nine day show so I would have to pick them up at the end. Can't stay that long.

    roths started spiking late this year according to TON. So not much. We find this also. Every year the spiking begins at a different time within about a 6 week window. JC
