I picked up these two today.

Paph Oberhausen's Diamant





Should look something like this:

Paph Sacred Dancer





Should look like this:



or this:


(Again, not my pictures)


The Oberhausen's Diamant has not bloomed yet, any idea when I could expect it to do so? I know sanderianum hybrids can be slow, but this is a pretty big plant, five mature growths and two new ones.

The O's Diamant has 5 mature gowths and two starts, not yet bloomed. I put it with my Brassias, so it should get enough light now. The Sacred Dancer looks to be reliable boomer, it has old spikes on all the mature growths. The grower couldn't remember if it is an alba or coloratum, but it was made with fairrianum album.

WooHoo, nice. Is it a secret where you got them?:poke:
They're from Mary's Orchids in Lake Worth, FL. My order from Bloomfield just came in too, from left to right: spicerianum, malipoense, and Fanaticum.

Cool haul. Carter and Holmes is supposed to be not to far from my Dad's too so hopefully I can stop there when I go to visit him.

Ok, Marco, I lied. I picked these three up today from Odom's Orchids.

Brassia Santa Barbara 'Riverbend'
It was way overgrown in a 6 inch pot, so I put it in a basket with a mix of spagnum and styrofoam peanuts.

This was the last one, they said most of theirs died before they could sell them. I think it may be because it was potted in pure sphagnum moss. I put it in a bark mix, there were a few rotten roots but it still has a fair number of good ones.




Paph Julius
Two mature growths and a new one, maybe it will think about blooming within the next decade.
