I beg to differ - those 8" long spurs are mighty sexy if you ask me :poke: :evil:
Actually they've hybridized angraecum with phalaenopsis (an unfortunate random pink hybrid, instead of something fascinating like Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica) to produce "something" that has pink...
Thanks again for the warm welcome. Great to see so many international members as well as canucks :) Heya Wendy glad to see you here too - maybe I'll pick up a slipper or two at the SOOS show coming up.
Slipper-free, I'm afraid, but maybe hanging out here a little will give me the bug. Thought I'd share in case any Canadian growers out there were interested in trades or pollen.
New to this forum - thought I'd check things out a little and say hi. Not a slipper grower, I'm afraid - mainly grow those 'other' orchids. Hope to share some knowledge, talk to you experienced growers, and have a bit of fun. Cheers!
