    Oh that is beautiful! Love the spots on this one. Don't remember seeing 'Koolau' before. I will have to look that one up.

    Well, I envy YOU, Randy! You live where you can grow outdoors ALL YEAR. I will have to find some way to heat my greenhouse inexpensively, OR bring ALL orchids inside for three months. ( when it starts to freeze at night ) What a MESS that is going to be! LOL! Betty :-)

    Betty, well I guess it goes both ways... you can grow those cool growing orchids but I
    cant. Advantage for us would be as you said we can grow outdoors year round with no
    fear of frost and good humidity.

    Boy, I will be visiting him soon, maybe somewhere around December. Our schedule
    didnt meet during the last POS show.

    No, Randy, I cannot grow "cool" growing orchids...only "warm" growing ones. It gets very HOT here in Texas, and I lost a couple of intermediate growing ones this Summer because of the heat. Betty
