I finally bloomed schlimii 'Marcia' that I've been struggling with for two years. Apparently, I've managed to find the proper conditions
to make at least one of three schlimii happy. The bloom is perfect and fragrant after two tries to form buds. WOOHOO!

KC in Japan, have a power outage during a sudden freeze. That's the only
thing I can think of that might have spurred blooming. Temps. got down to
about 40F for a few hours. I have two more...'Oak Hill' and one that just
says schlimii with no clonal name. Now I have some hope for them.

Thank you Tom. It's a perfect bloom.

Ray, you're such a doubter. Been talkin' to Eric perhaps???? ;>)

Because, Ozpaph, I love my peace and quiet. Also I used to do advertising photography
and had enough of it. Don't know if it's the same in Brisbane, but phones are just
annoying...spam calls constantly. I do have a land line that I only plug in when I want
to make a call.

My dear friend Eric, I have a spouse, four dogs, a cat and a parrot. Add to that relatives
close by and nursery employees. I don't call that being a hermit...do you???? ;>)

The reason you don't cell phone - photo is too much going on! Sounds like you need more you-time, just you, the orchids, and a camera! :p

Nothing like Joe, but I have hope for you someday. Obviously, I rather like computers as long as "somebody" isn't telling me what to think.

Never Eric. I was specifically referring to the right wing nuts trying to restrict voting and
spreading The Big Lie. Equality means everybody!
