    Hi
    These are still blooming............Mtssa. Pelican Lake 'Everglades' & Charles Finch 'Izumi', Lc 'Luminosa', Noid catt, Oncda. Sharry Baby 'Sweet Fragrance', Den. Burana Jade 'Burana', Phal. Sunflower, NOID dens, plus Lc. Schilleriana bloomed again and I have spikes on my B. Nodosa & Odbrs. Fangtastic Bob Henley 'HOF #4' (thanks Diane) & a few others... I am truly blessed
    BUT, the one I am the happiest with is my Den. Emma White !! I know this is a popular den, but I got mine back in 2005 & have been waiting forever for it to bloom. I was so tempted to buy one in bloom so many times...
    I didn't even know if it was still alive when I catagorized my orchids, no plant had the marker.... But, she's alive & has 2 spikes!!!!!!

    Default Emma White

    I'm so glad I didn't give into the temptation of buying one in bloom.... it took 2 years but I think this was worth it

    I also have 2 new orchids.. birthday gifts from my daughter, Tracy, who also lives in Okeechobee....
    Lc. Phra Nakhon Khiri x C. Netrasiri 'Rainbow', which just bloomed yesterday & Enc. Betty Mae x Enc. Rufa.... I haven't been able to find any info online about the Betty Mae, but I do have Tracy's index card with small photo & info, so I guess I'll just have to wait until it blooms for me next spring to get a good pic

    NOID Dens are still blooming like crazy.....

    I lost my Den Frosty Dawn 'New York' & Precious Dawn 'Pauwela Flame' to root rot??? Leaves turned yellow then stalks went mushy

    My B. Nodosa & Blc. Malworth 'Orchid Glade' x George King 'Serendipity' have spikes!!!! More long awaited arrivals....

    Default Happy New Year!

    Hi Ya'll
    Well, I don't have to wait until spring for the Enc.Betty Mae x Rufa to bloom, she has a spike!!! I noticed it yesterday when I brought everybody who was either spiking, budding or blooming inside. Boy, did it get cold last night, 31 degrees!!!! I know you Northerners are laughing at me, but for us thin blooded Southern folk, that's a cold we seldom feel
    Here are this week's bloomers....
    fragrant NOID HD purple catt, Phal. I-Hsin 'Sunflower' (again), a 3rd Dgmra. Skywalker 'Red Star' blooming, new vanda, Tavee Susha Fuch Gold, plus not pictured... Enc. 'Twinkle', Mtdm. Hawaiian Sunset 'Exotic Flame' bloomed again & my Odbrs. Fangtastic 'Bob Henley' is still going strong!
    I hope everyone had a great holiday season!

    Absolutely beautiful !!!! Only because of what I have read, I am surprised Cattleya grow in Florida due to the need of temp. drop at night ! Gee, maybe I can have some luck here in Zone 9, SE Louisiana.
    Congratulations !!!!! Janet (Janagolf)
