I haven't been to this message board in a long time. I am excited now because I am getting 3 phrags, and one paph as soon as the weather is better.

These are divisions of Chuck Acker's plants:
Phrag Caudatum var. Giganteum X sibling
Phragmipedium richteri
Phragmipedium Conchiferum

And this is from Allen T on Ebay

Paph Venustum Album x sib (Torrenchurchill)


These below are my collection so far:
Paph. [Mildred Hunter X Paph. Adam Hausermann] x Paph. Winston Churchill ‘Indomitable’
Paph. Berenice (lowii ‘Hsinying’ X Philippense)
Paph. Avalon Druid [Avalon Mist Tall Dream X Paph Druryi Ray] HCC/AOS
Paph. Rothschildianum ‘M.H.’ BM/TPS X Hsing Frantz
Paph. Delenatii var. dunkel
Paph. Tonsum var. Braemii
Paph. Greyii (Paphiopedilum godefroyae x Paphiopedilum niveum)
Paph. Godefroyae 'Gold Fish' x Paph. Godefroyae '#1
Phrag. Nicholle Tower (longifolium ‘Black as Night’ X d’Alessandroi)
Phrag. Olaf Gruss (besseae flavum 'Sulphur' x pearcei OZ-Z5468)

I don't think we've been introduced. I'm abax/Angela and
I'm glad you're back with us.


Yes, sorry, I have been getting a graduate degree, and from about October, I have been recovering from a health issue that nearly took my life. I am back to graduate school and feeling better now. I have about 30 other orchids, mostly Cattleya types. I want to get more into the Brazilian Species Cattleyas. I have a few "random" others as well. I am in New Mexico, and although it is dry, the weather (with outdoor watering) is good enough to keep them outside until November. In March they all go out into the shade house, which I am fixing up with a mister in a week or so.

My main issue is that while I was sick, my little orchids did not get very good care--
Paph. Delenatii var. dunkel
Paph. Tonsum var. Braemii
Paph. Greyii (Paphiopedilum godefroyae x Paphiopedilum niveum)
Paph. Godefroyae 'Gold Fish' x Paph. Godefroyae '#1

these are a bit sad looking but they all have a second plant starting.

well, thanks for the howdy, Katy

Good luck restoring your health and your orchids. Grad school can
be a real grind. I developed an ulcer between Master's and PhD
that took forever to heal. Eat right, drink plenty of liquids and get
some rest...only advice I've got since I didn't do any of those things!!!
