    Default Blc. (Rlc) Terri Henderson ‘Paul’ & my 1000th post

    Today marks 1 year here. In that time, I have posted 1000 times, acquired 93 new plants, a light-setup (for winter, and year-round for those who faint at 102* temps), and learned what a bulbo was, not to mention a zygo. Still not quite clear on "floofie" but I think it means a large and frilly catt. If so, this is my first floofie...

    Most of my catts are smaller, or not particularly frilly. This one...I recently happened upon an online special for 7 BS orchids for ridiculously low price. Growers choice; a grabbag basically, no promise even of what types they'd be. When the box arrived, 6 of the 7 were in bud or spike, and this is the first to open. It had only 1 bud (should have been 2, but one had broken off), but it's 6 inches across, very fragrant, and I love the colors!

    Congratulations Kathi! It must have taken some planning and effort to get to exactly 1000 posts in 1 year! LOL I remember the good old days when you worried what the family would say if you came home with more than a few orchids each month. Now, I get amused by all the bold type each time your Growlist comes to the top.

    Your new floofie is gorgeous. What else came in your grab bag? You know I love a package deal.

    Kassie--LOL! Yea, I know. I think my family has accepted that I am a bit of an addict when it comes to orchids.

    The rest of the grab bag:
    Blc. Mem. Mickey Boatwright ‘Carmela’
    Pot. Burana Beauty ‘Burana’ HCC/AOS
    Epi floribundum x Enc. Linearfoliodes
    Mtssa. Rademaker ‘Ace'
    Den. Medy Stripe
    Vasco Viboon Velvet 'Perfection'

    All but the vasco arrived in bloom, and are now opening. It's been a fun week!

    Thanks, Bruce--this is such an awesome forum!!!
