As if my week could get no worse (why I havent posted in a while by the way), I get back in town this weekend and my one and only phrag besseae is DEAD :sob: This may not sound so aweful to yall but I havent killed an orchid yet and thats not the one I wanted to be first. GRRRR!!!! I have other besseae hybrids but am now very cautious to try the species again. Sorry yall, I just had to vent :(

Blake, I am sorry to hear that. When it rains, it pours. I hope things start to turn around soon.

I would definitely recommend giving up entirely and sending all your remaining orchids to me. PM me and I'll send along my mailing address.

kidding! I just lost my sargentianum to crown rot, so I know how you feel...

Blake, if it will make you feel better I can post the photo of me in the Kovachii suit again. Huh? Huh? Maybe someone can animate so I do a funny little dance in the flower suit. Come on, you know you want to see that.

I think if we animate, it should be a bud to bloom photo...haha
I really didn't think that was you.
That took guts you know....in the other photos there were no glasses...so I didn't recognize!

It's never fun to lose an orchid. I always have a hard time throwing out anything that might just have a tiny spark of life left in it.

A couple of weeks ago. I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier. Can we still be friends? I want to make this work.

Well, it was doing just fine. Potted in s/h. Then, it became posessed by satan, or possibly some sort of bacteria. And then it turned brown and died. :sob: I would like to see the Kovachii suit again :)

No wonder Heather likes Mosi so much... she's been parading as a kovachii!
