    Default Dendrobium purpureum 'Red' x sib 'New Type'

    I honestly went to an orchid show this past weekend with a friend to only pick up some supplies that I will need when a shipment of 22 bare root Bulbophyllum arrives next week. I saw the color and shape of this bloom and could not resist so I can take no credit for this bloom.

    Thanks guys, I am glad to see that I am not alone...once an addict always an addict for buying orchids! I am going to try to stop buying any more orchids after the Redland Festival in May, except replacements of some, but when you see ones like this one it is and will be very difficult to not buy! I have already decided not to go to as many orchid shows in the future, have already decided on two shows the next 2 weeks to stay home, it's a good thing our orchid show season is coming to a close.

    Very good Den. Resisting buying new orchids is going to be a tough one.

    I particularly like the green tips on the purple blooms.
