    Phrag. besseae - Peruvian vs Ecuadorean flower color.

    Thought I'd post a comparison of flower color between one of our Peruvian and one of our Ecuadorean clones. Not a dramatic difference, but enough to make us favor the Peruvian clone when it comes to producing Phrag. besseae seedlings or hybridizing for red flower color.

    Phrag. Sherman's March 'Fox Valley' AM/AOS

    Blooming this morning on a small division, in a sunny greenhouse. As you would expect, this grex (MDC x B. LeAnn) is simialr to Phrag. Fox Valley Fireball. Love the color saturation.

    Fox Valley Orchids, Ltd. and eBay

    Hi All, Not sure if any of you are aware that we use Blue Genesis as our long time website hosting service. Recently, Blue Genesis changed to a portal based configuration and after two solid weeks of trying and a ton of back and forth emails, we still can't figure out how to update our online...

    Fox Valley Orchids, Ltd. - Greenhouse, Spring 2020.

    Thought you all might like to see the magical place I'm lucky enough to work in every day. I thought the Redbud tree branches (Cercis canadensis) in front added to the photo interest.

    Phrag. Grouville 4N

    (Eric Young x Hanne Popow) - In bloom this morning in a blindingly sunny greenhouse. Looks like Phrag. besseae fma flavum might have been used in at least one of the parents if not both.

    Phrag. Rosalie Dixler 'Fox Valley' AM/AOS

    Welcome to this year's rendition of one of our best red Phrag. breeders. Very sunny in the gh this morning, so the colors a little washed out. Flower substance is heavy.

    Happy Easter!

    Phalaenopsis MS Happy Dolly 'MBL039' - In bloom this morning. Bought this beautiful 'French Spot" (For you old timers out there). Thirty years ago, this quality flower w a 8.7cm HNS would fetch hundreds of dollars. We bought this mericlone during Hausermann's Open House last year for $19.95 . It...

    Paph. haynaldianum 'Birchwood'

    One of Dr. Clement's favorite multiflorals from years gone by. It grew poorly until we moved it to a shadier and warmer greenhouse location and it slowly it began to recover. I checked the tag and it said the last time it bloomed was 2012, so it's been a long road back. Only one flower this...

    Phrag. besseae fma flavum 'D'Oro' 4N

    Thought you might like to see one of our two divisions of this beautiful clone that's blooming today in a cloudy greenhouse. Apologies for the blue gloves - I've been repotting some seedlings. But the gloves do provide a great background for a yellow flower!

    Hi Angie, Is there a way to delete a post once it's posted? Several times lately, I've double-entered a post and can't use the Thread Tools to get rid of the redundant one. Thanks, TomK
