If you do want a piece of the hinksianum, I took a couple-growth division off last April which is now about to bloom. Shipping weather is a bit of a way off, but I can put your name in the pot and we can work out a trade at your leisure.
Pete: How is your virus testing going? I running about 25% so far but things should improve as I've tested the sick looking plants first. I've got two excellent articles that Terry found. One on viruses and one on disinfecting. I'm using the disinfecting method. Let me now if you would like them. I'll email them.
Hello! I just read some of your comments on cattleyas and I have a question about mine. It is supposed to be jenmanii coerulea and I read that it should have strong fragrance. Mine however opened on the 12th and still can't smell anything. I usually have very good sense of smell I can smell the rest of the orchids that I have in bloom now. But when it comes to cattleyas - no. See next message.
