    Hi All, As I make room for my Dendrobium collection (that grew exponentially this weekend), I am preparing my most of my Paphs and Bulbos for sale. I have general photos first, but because this is an extensive collection I won't post photos or prices until requested. Shipping/packaging will...

    Stanhopea embreei

    Well it turns out that my Stan wardii is actually embreei. The guy I got it from said it was either wardii or embreei but he couldn't remember and the tag was gone. After 2 years, it finally bloomed and now I know for sure. I actually like embreei better. :drool: Anyone know what the...

    Dendrobium Judith Nakayama

    I was able to convince John at Clown Alley to part with this beauty from his show display last year. It was pulled for judging but did not have enough flowers. I am working on getting more flowers from it (4 new growths working). In the meantime, it gave me a beautiful bloom (not quite...

    Re-Arranged Phrag Area

    After speaking with Glen at Piping Rock, I decided to move the Phrags lower in the Shade House closer to the concrete floor. I also added a piece of extra screen to shade them from the afternoon sun. I also took y'all's advice and raised the shade cloth off of the SH roof. I do feel the...

    Light & Temp

    Hi Everyone, Rick got me to thinking last night about my light and temps so I thought I should take some readings and get your feedback. My shadehouse is situated in the East part of my back yard. As you can see from the photos, I can't do much about the neighbor's Crepe Myrtles and...

    Paphiopedilum Roland var alba

    This is a lovely alba form that I got from Sam Tsui. Double Grey 1/2 album 'Mallingham HCC/AOS x S. Gratrix 1/2 album 'Full Moon' I think the math was that I had a 50% chance of the alba form so I purchased two. My other non-alba Roland perished. This one is finally blooming and looks...

    Recently at our MOS show, (May 17-19), I had a chance to sit down with Rick to discuss his article "What do Orchids Eat?" from the March issue of ORCHIDS. I had been experiencing the same declines he mentioned in the article and I was really struggling with my collection. He was patient...

    iPhone Snapshots

    These are not the best shots but they will give you an idea of my shade house. I'm in the process of re-arranging so it is a mess. Not much in bloom now because the spring weather has been cold and wet. We are just starting to warm up.
