    Hi

    Hope every one is well a few blooms, before all hell breaks loose with extending the greenhouse.

    The wilhelminae and P. Schaetzchen are my favorites of the bunch. Such gorgeous flowers.

    Hi, Blondie!
    I love the wilhelminiae! Do you know its parentage?
    Good luck with the extension project - judging from the photos of all your wonderfull plants, they probably could need a wee bit more space! (the eternal problem of all paphio- and other kinds of orchioholics! ;))
    Kind regards, Jens

    Your wilhelmine is beautiful!
    Extending is a good thing to do. I wished it would be possible for me, too. But on the 4th floor it's a bit difficult...

    That's the spirit! And, probably, even the most rational way to go about it! :cool:

    No matter how big you build the new extension you'll have it
    filled up. Trust me on this. I have a 12' x 28' greenhouse and
    I've been fighting (or not!) orchid greed for years. ;>) Being a
    Phrag person, I like Amanda the most.
