    Big & heavy Paph Franz Glanz broke its own neck

    This is a super slow bloomer, Waited 3 month for the bloom to open & it lasted only one day :( The big flower measures almost 5" wide with a huge bowl, the weight caused it to break its own neck this morning. The flower feels pretty heavy in my hand actually. Anyone seen this happen to big...

    What to expect if I cross these two orchids?

    I've been trying to collect larger flowed novelty Phals, there are not to many. The bigger one usually not as intense in color & often not fragrant. I have these two both have larger flower almost 3", both waxy & flat, intense patterned color. One is fragrant but a bit too strong for me...

    Phal. Grosbeak 'Geisha'

    This is the moment that I wish for a better camera equipment, my IPhone can't capture the exotic color combination and complexity of this flower. Lips & petals are purple, lower pair of petals are redish, Septal cream yellow with purple splash, center nose area looks like a Bald Eagle. It's the...

    Cheap TDS meter correlation?

    iPhone close-up

    Not easy as my iPhone can't keep focus in this guy for some reason. Probably took 50+ photos to get this one in focus. Can you see the hairs? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fake Bellinas

    Apparently, there are many ways to make fake Bellinas. I saw one at a show that looks like bellina but smells bad. I wonder how many ways are out there? Post your fake Bellinas? I have one that everyone believes it's a bellina, but it's not. It's actually Violacea Alba x Bellina Mondo...

    Octopus Orchid Advices

    Super cute, but I have no idea how to culture this, looks so different from my norm ppp (phrag, Paph, Phal) big three types. Looks kind of fragile, is this an easy one? Would my east window do it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can the bud blast be saved ?

    Paph Knob Mochizuki

    Not very common, sound like made in Japan. It's a cross between paph memoria Larry heuer x paph emersonii. Since Larry Heuer is paph malipoense x emersonii, this cross is 75% emersonii. I was hoping an Emmersonii looking yellow pouch, but no, it looks more like Larry Heuer instead, a bit...
