    Florida Cold Spell

    Unusual for south Florida to get 4 days of low 30’s that require those of us who keep our collections in Pergolas on the lanai or open greenhouses to have to encase in plastic and use heaters.

    Phrag QF Red Wings x QF Kamakilo Tyler

    Vanda surviving crown rot

    I thought I would post this information since I was having difficulty finding the information on other sites. Unfortunately Hurricane Ian was very damaging to many of us here in Florida. My orchid collection took a hit and lost about 1/3 of my collection but home and humans all fine. Two Vandas...

    Phrag. America ‘Purple Mountain Majesty' AM/AOS

    FYI…..all my USA ecuagenera have done well. The ones from Ecuador have not faired well in Florida heat.

    Phrag. America ‘Purple Mountain Majesty' AM/AOS

    You certainly like the horned species. Mt. Meru Jackson’s is one of my favorites. Never had the two horned species.

    Phrag. America ‘Purple Mountain Majesty' AM/AOS

    Wanted In search of BS Phrag Carol Kanzer
