Hi everyone, I’m from Italy and I’m part of an Italian orchid society, I cultivate a bit of everything. I love Catasetum, Cattleyas, Aerangis, Dendrobium, Phapiopedilum, Phragmipedium e so on. I'm sure I will learn a lot from your experiences, thank you very much for welcoming me. I’ll thank you all with my Rhyncholaelia aristocrat opening today ☺️

Thank you Patrick ☺️ But now I’m curious what your favorite primary hybrid is?

My favorite is C.Empress Frederick (C.mossiae x dowiana)
Oh wow it’s a beautiful cross, I didn’t know it! I’m buying Cattleyas and it’s hybrids now that I change my house, before I didn’t have the right conditions to grow them!
I’ll try to find it! 🤩
Thanks!

I've knocked around Italy many years ago and fell in love with Tuscany and the wonderful
FOOD and a lot of it. Italians eat heartily and well. The breads are to die for!
Oh good! I live one hour from Tuscany, and yes we like too much eat well! Thank you ☺️

A few times, actually.

My father was based out of the US Embassy in London, so I got to visit Venice, Florence and Rome, as a a child. More recently, I have been to Milan several times on business, and just a few years ago, my wife and I had two weeks in which we visited Venice, Florence, then spent several days near Cortona (Piazzano) before heading to Rome, then took the train to Naples, where we were picked up and given a private tour of Pompeii before spending the rest of the time in Sorrento.

I think the next time (assuming we can), we’ll stays in Tuscany and do day trips from there.
