    Protocol when someone sells you an original awarded plant

    I was about to purchase an original plant that was recently awarded by the AOS and the seller wants to give me scans of the original certificate rather than the original itself. Also I would not be getting the award tag for the plant. Seller is an established breeder of exceptional reputation...

    How long is unused potting mix viable?

    Greetings all, Hope everyone is well. With double duty on a couple of projects, I had to scale back a bit on the orchids this past year and have not been online much at all, but still going at it and now with more free time I have a small number of new flasks coming this week. What I am...

    Slc. Dream Weaver- first bloomer from SVO

    When Fred Clark posted his Cattleya seedling list a few months back, I dove in on a few of the mini crosses. They are like a miniature jungle on one of the orchid shelves, and when I started sorting them out for repotting this weekend, I found out this little guy had decided to bloom on the...

    3.5 inch round green plastic azalea pots- 700 available

    Good evening all- feel this one is safe to post without diluting auction interest, so here goes. As many of you know, those wonderful little round plastic pots are hard to find these days. Thanks to someone on this forum, last year I found and bought a case of about 1,200 (only way to get...

    Large parcel of compots- roth, sanderianum, adductum, adductum anitum etc.

    Good evening all, Last week I went to NYC to work on my dream venture, and with current enthusiasm we are going to move forward much faster than expected. This not only means more travel going into the fall, but that my original plans to use part of my second bedroom/office as a growing area...

    Paph. godefroyae fma. alba x philippinense var. roebelenii

    Posting this one because it is so unusual. First bloom on a very small plant. The bud was damaged- hence the dark spots in the dorsal and slight tears in one petal. A very large flower relative to the plant, and a second bud developing. Curious to know if anyone else has flowered this cross...

    Paph. fowliei v. alba

    Tiny plant, tiny flower. It is growing on me the more I look at it.

    L. Seagulls 'SVO' x L. Brazilian Tangerine 'SVO'

    A real gem from Sunset Valley Orchids, our forum's newest member vendor, to show an example of the great things Fred is doing. First flower on a first bloom seedling. 5.9cm natural spread and bloom has been fully open for 2 days. Rupiculous growth habit. A tough one for me to photograph. In real...

    2018 GNTOS (Dallas) Orchid Show Photos

    Just some photos I took at the show. The exhibits aisles were very tight and there was a good sized crowd, so apologies if some of the angles are not ideal. Mostly Paphs- but I had to throw in a few others I really liked. None of these are my plants- all were in exhibits at the show. Names...

    Paph. Hellas 'Westonbirt' AM/RHS x Chardmoore 'Mrs. Cowburn'

    Had a great day at the Dallas orchid show- editing and uploading photos now to post in the Orchid Events section- and I wanted to share this one that came home with me today. It is not ever going to win any awards, but I love this flower and it could make a wonderful show plant when it gets...

    2018 GNTOS (Dallas, TX) Spring Show and Sale- March 9-10

    Hey all, Since no one else has noted it, I wanted to post that there is a show next weekend for the Greater North Texas Orchid Society here in Dallas. Show is listed as March 9-10, but from the schedule it looks like Saturday the 10th is the only day it is open to the public. Here are details...

    Paph Johanna Burkhardt x rothschildianum

    First flowering just last week. Sorry for the awkward angle- but it was shipped in spike and I was busy and did not properly attend to staking. As much I am deep in the world of growing Paphs out of flask, I have seldom handled flowering plants in recent years- and so I am not up to date...

    Penny for your thoughts- my current venture and dream business

    Greetings all, This is not a solicitation to sell things- just to be clear, since I myself am very weary of all the friends starting online businesses. The website is just a placeholder for me as I begin the process of reaching out to retailers to stock our merchandise. I post because as I...

    4 Paphs for sale from Denver's collection

    Good evening all, As you may know, I participated in the purchase of Denver's collection. I am keeping all of the very small plants, but I recently had the chance to acquire several flasks of bellatulum and adductum, and my growing space is very limited until next spring. I underestimated the...

    Tap water - why not?

    Good evening all, Went looking for a good recent thread on this to no avail before posting. The subjects of the Coryopedilum Chronicles are coming along nicely, but the adductum anitum and randsii are going a bit slow. I have never been a proponent of going too heavy with fertilizer- and...

    Wanted- 3 or 3.5 inch round plastic green pots

    A long shot perhaps, but maybe someone will have a stash of them. 10 years ago when I was growing out flasks, it was very easy to find basic 3 or 3.5 inch round plastic pots in green. Now- no such luck it seems. I found some in a terra cotta color that could do, but I would prefer green...
