that's an awesome photo and group unlikely that i'll ever have that many they do vary somewhat but the ones that i consider nice aren't different enough to have more than 10 or so...That's a nice group of my favorite species. Well done...Maybe one day you will have a group like this one from The Orchid review - January 1910:
Like you Rich, I also met Theresa on one of my orchid show/judging circuit in Reno and listened to her wonderful fairrieanum talk. A few years later, I bought some of her fairrieanum divisions (and charlesworthii album divisions too) of her best plants and learnt to grow them here indoors successfully (following her instructions of cool winters and never letting them dry out). They are some of my favourite paphs in my collection.Theresa also had a talk on fairrieanum. When the vendor area opened up, I went seeking some more and she offered some via mail after she got back home. (I find that the nursery visits are the best opportunities for building a relationship. You get dedicated focus, money is falling out of your pockets, and can gel on common interests
I'm always a curious soul: if the information about the 'fairrieanum breeding boondoggle' [wonderful word, by the way, new to my vocabulary] is public knowledge, would you care to enlighten this transatlantic individual?!(that was when I first learned about the infamous fairrieanum breeding boondoggle that conjoined Theresa’s future with Sam’s past).
