Well done , shows the valve of a few flowering before a potential cull, how cultural conditions ect can affect the flowering in a given season.
Sound like, and am! 75 years. I would still buy green bananas, but as a physician I am realistic about my future. The probability that I am still growing orchids in 10 years is low. With that time horizon, holding on to a mediocre flower for multiple years to see if it will get better isn’t as attractive as buying a clean, blooming-size mericlone of something that is already great. Time for me to enjoy great flowers and leave the gambling on new crosses and long experiments on growing conditions to Patrick and other young ones in our hobby.
You had me fooled too. All of you are young (at heart) to me!
