    Default Slc Ruby Royale

    Now, here is a testament to giving a plant a second chance of blooming!!!

    I purchased the plant exactly a year ago with a bud which when it opened was just the most horrid little flower! suffice it to say, it wasn't worth a picture then.

    However, here it is now much stronger.

    Slc Ruby Royale


    From my understanding the flask this plant came in was from California, USA. The cross is Slc Precious Jewel 'Goodstuff' x S. Arizona 'Cactus flower'.

    cheers,
    tim

    Tim, don't believe those two...that orchid was meant to be grown in Arkansas USA. I mean, just look at it! IT is screaming to come to Arkansas.. Hey, here is an idea, maybe you should bring it by yourself!! Maybe a visit? hehehe....

    Beautiful!

    Cheers,

    Oh come, Bruce, be realistic. A lil tyke like that would get lost in your greenhouse amoungst all the large plants you have! Likely the sme problem for, Di. No it is very clear ... a substandard bloom like that belongs up here with me ....

    Nice flowers, Tim!
