Mark you calanders!!

While im at it...Im new here and posting my first. Ive been watching the discussions, acquiring much needed slipper info. Been keeping orchids about 2 years. Grow indoors winter, outside in the summer. Collect a bit of everything, but only have 5 slippers. 1 paph and 4 phrags

Paph Transvall
Phrags:
Sorcerer's Apprentice
Afterglo (Eric Young x Sorc. App.)
Uranus (Lindleyanum x Grande)
? (Pearcei x Sorcerer's App.)

The Afterglo has bloomed (my first slipper bloom) and is in on flower # 2.
After hearing so much about S/H, ive decided to try it out and have tossed 2 of the phrags and a Phal into it to experiment.

Congrats on taking the S/H plunge! My first time was a bust but my second so far so good. One word (well two or three) of advice - don't freak out!

Glad you are with us. Buy more slippers at the show!

We've quite a few good growers in Ohio - search them out, it will be worth your while! I have often wished I lived closer to there, because of them!

Dave, welcome from NYC. If you have a chance I would recommend you check w/ Hoosier to see if they have any of their [jewel orchid, dossinia, etc.] hybrids and buy a couple. They are beautiful, easy to grow, fairly rare and increase in value.

Eric, We get Hoosier's to come to our meetings since they are so close. I have 1 jewel and I will be getting a few more. They were at our last meeting in January, which I missed because I got busy with honey do's and forgot. Man that sucked, but it did save me some money.

Hey Jon.

You too Park Bear. I thought that was you.

I just got in from a show committee meeting. Only 2.5 weeks away. Hard to believe its that close.

Eric, i too am a big fan of the Jewels / terrestrials. Ill be on the lookout for some. Leon Glicenstein from Hoosier gave a talk about Jewels at our meeting a while back and it was awesome. Hes really into hybridizing the Jewels.
