    Paph. (Alchemy ‘Titanic’ x Sorcerer’s Stone ‘Enchanted Orb’

    It opened, and is honestly unimpressive, especially considering the size of the bud. With its two parents, I expected more (maybe I just have no taste!). First bloom, so maybe it will improve.

    Thanks! They were on the end of the table and I’ve moved them to the center where the light is more intense. We shall see.

    Can't seem to get these to bloom. Ideas??

    Terry: I asked Jerry about the Michael Koopowitz as I bought it from him. Here is his reply: "I would get it off the heat map and it should start spiking by May or June. Both parents go through drier brighter period at this time of year in nature and can flower the most anywhere from April to...

    Can't seem to get these to bloom. Ideas??

    Hmmm. I can’t get them that low with light, as the garage would be my only option. Maybe not meant to be.

    Culture Notes from Brandon Tam's visit to Desert Valley Orchid Society

    Wow, very interesting. I was at Huntington in the late 1970s and will never forget it. I don’t specifically remember the orchids. Was more into roses at the time. This motivates me to want to go back. All the way from VA it would be a trek, but a worthy one. Thanks for the motivation.

    Paph Hilo Black Eagle 'Dolly Dagger ' AM

    I’d say that means you had one heck of a great bloom when it was awarded. If the flowers are larger than when awarded, get it judged again. Kudos!!
