    Default Ascda. Kultana Gems

    I visited a friend that grows Vandas, yesterday...this came home with me along with a couple of others.
    The blooms are about 4.5 inches across and very heavy textured. I thought it had great form.

    This is my Thai friend that made all the Mimi Palmer crosses. We have been buddies for quite a few years He is a quite, shy gentleman that loves koi, lotus and orchids. He one of the most generous people I have ever met.
    I bought a few orchids and we talked about this Mimi Palmer 'Teoh Boon Hait' cross that I bought as young plants several years ago. I told him that someone told me it could have award potential on a couple of the crosses. He was really happy.
    So I am leaving after lunch and putting the three vandas in the truck...He comes back out with a huge plant and gives it to me. He hands me a tag: V. Mimi Palmer ' Teo Boon Hiat' HCC/HRT X V. coerulea. And tells me, let me know what you think of this one. I was wowed by his gift.
    Who knows what this one is going to look like. I can't wait!!

    Love this story. Some of my favorite orchids come from friends who grow orchids. I always love to see an orchid bloom that a friend gave to me or traded to me. Means so much more to me than the ones I simply order or buy in a store.

    Cheers,

    Most people give plants as gifts from the heart. I always treasure those the most.

    So this is one of the lucky ones that did come home with you. It sounds as if you have a great friend. I guess he is very generous.

    O.K. tell your friend I like him already and may I have three Vanda's please? Or if this doesn't work how about a cultural exchange? In this case I will send him cactus and he can send me Vanda's. Of course the exchange rate will have to be worked out. We must have proper standards you know. So I was thinking it really should be based on supply and demand. He supplies and I demand. All kidding aside he sounds like a great friend and a nice guy. Both are attributes that are rare and precious. The Vanda flowers you have displayed are so covered in deep red spots that they remind me of plush carpet. A very enjoyable thread. AL
