    NOID Cattleya

    Beautiful bloom! Does look nothing like WW. Best to label it a NOID. But interestingly about Cattleyas is that cloning can in fact not be 100% all the time. There is a percentage of failure in which the clone will deviate in color, in shape. Sometimes even looking more like one of the...

    Ups and downs of life do that. The key is realizing, as has been mentioned, that plants will be available when you resume collecting and most everyone else on this site are always here. (take a moment to pop in when you can for a little visual 'vacation') Glad you are keeping a few though as...

    Laelia tenebrosa

    I too liked the 'old' names. Half the time I see a name I have no clue what it is without a pic to give me a hint.

    Counter-top R/O Help!

    I just got a new counter top r/o system and when I went to connect it found it does not fit my sink. Great for the outdoor hydrants, but I don't use it there. I went to see my original counter top r/o but must have pitched it (it was battle worn all over!). As I could see what part I may have...

    Priority definition

    Years ago I sent a priority - at the time had to pay extra for tracking - with tracking. Mailed first week of October, arrived week before Christmas. Where it was all that time I have no idea and worse, neither did the post office!

    LaCrosse wireless weather station fail

    We have too low a signal here for wifi to work correctly - according to our internet provider. I don't know the 'ins and outs' of this technology, most that we don't have success with 'things' that use wifi.

    Cattleya plugs

    I'm back with the orchids again abax! Wonderful to see you here. Mom had some rough times for about two years- now doing very well at 88. I'd swear she is in better health than me for now! So, being back in the swing of things, am thrilled to see so many still here. Am getting used to the...

    Cattleya Interglossa

    I love bifoliates and this beauty sure takes my eye! A lot of folks don't care for the bifoliates as they say hard to grow but I've found them rather easy. They are more than worth growing!

    Cattleya plugs

    I have a handful of Cattleya plugs that need a home. They are a couple of inches long. Nice and green and healthy. All I ask is that you pay for shipping, which I will be no more than $8 priority USPS. I'll send a couple with each request - till I run out! Here are the plugs: Blc Waianae...

    Greenhouse construction

    Thanks abax! It's six of one half dozen other whether to buy or build 'myself'. Having limited funds, I want to do as much 'right' as possible - I more than know there are always changes or wish done different once up and running. But durability and moderate running cost are biggies for me...

    Greenhouse construction

    Thanks Ray! I know you had mentioned Turners before, which look tempting, but I worry about our harsh winters of heavy snow and cold temps. And now, we seem to be affected by high winds and hail during the 'warmer' seasons. I agree with multi wall polycarbonate, especially for the roof. Do...

    Greenhouse construction

    I've been looking at greenhouses and all the materials used to build them. For those who own them, can you help with the pros and cons of materials, in particular, structural parts made of aluminum/wood/? . Thanks!
