    What a beauty!

    How did you bring them home? Did you check them as luggage? We are going to Hawaii in June, I might do some orchid shopping there, but not sure how to bring them home. I guess I could always ask vendor to ship them for me.

    Isn't this one great, Howard? Mine has yet to bloom, but I have Mem. Robert Strait 'Blues' also. It is very similar and fragrant. Is 'Blue Hawaii' fragrant?

    Fragrant and how!!!!! Is your 'Blues' of similar color...or hasn't it flowered for you, yet?

    No, I made my wife sit with them on her lap...since they are under 2 we didn't have to pay for a ticket and she always has taken care of the KIDS so I thought it would be a natural for her to take care of these orchids!

    Seriously, we drove 'cause I like to drive and it's too much of a hassle to bring stuff like this on a plane if you can't have it packed properly
