    This is Den. Jim Beck (Kathryn Banks 'Jem' x (Gieliam Leaney x Aussie Victory))

    We were going to only take two plants to the society meeting today, but found another that he thought folks might enjoy. So, here it is, dripping all over the kitchen...

    I am sorry the photos are not better. I did not plan to take them and ended up using a flash and not a tripod. I picked the best of about ten quick shots. The first one shows the bloom (fairly accurate color too), the last shot is of the whole plant. It is hard to believe we cut this plant in half just a little over two years ago to send Sue a large division. It has already grown back to a really nice show sized plant. Now I suppose I should clean it up and get rid of the dead spikes. hehehehehe... Enjoy!

    Default Love it!

    Bruce,

    Great shots of such a lovely kingianum cross. You must give me some culture tips as I managed to kill my D. kingianum. (I think it got too cold and too dry...hmm..)

    I bet it does have a scent

    It does have a slight fragrance. I bet if it was in the sun it would be a lot stronger. It was so cloudy and gray here today.

    Thanks, Clint. It is really a fast and easy grower. We grow it with our phrags - if you can believe that! Same light/water and constant air movement. We water it along with everything else and fert the same as well. During the winter we only fertilize about once a month.

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Great looking plant. I wish I could have seen it in person. I am such a slacker when it comes to attending OSO meetings. I never seem to be able to drive 10 minutes. There is always something that comes up. Pathetic I know.

    Today was the chili cook-off and mini auction. I auctioned off about 25 plants. (several catts, mini-cats, phrags and even an oncidium or two.) One of our members even brought in orchid seed and gave to everyone at the meeting. I plan to sow it as soon as I have some time. It is called Bletilla striata (Hardy Chinese Orchid) - native to this part of Arkansas and thrives outside in our area. He gave us both the purple variety and the white variety. He brought in a "flask" that he started at the end of November and the little baby plants were so tiny. It was very cool. AND, I was "this" close to winning the plant raffle: Oncidium Papilio. I was like three digits off! Dang! Anyway, you missed a great meeting! I hope to see you in February.

    Cheers,
    BD
