    Default Looks like a Bat !

    I saw this rather odd looking bloom this past weekend. Someone had pre-ordered this one. It was a little pricey $35.00. Very cool looking bloom though. I was told that you can not touch these blooms or they will fade and drop within the same day? The blooms were very dark in color, almost black. Still Having Fun, Rich

    There were a number of Phaius when I was i Hawaii. Some were considered weeds because they just sprouted everywhere. They were lovely. I had never experience orchids in flea markets...nor had I ever seen so many awesome Catts!

    Wow, Rich! Good thing we don't have that vendor here, or I'd never get anything done on the weekends! Love the bat!

    Rich...how creative! I never thought of turning that extra suv into a nursery! I guess if the price of gas keeps going up that might be the only decent use for one! After all you can never have enough greenhouse space! Well done! Remo

    Well Remo, this vendor drives almost two hours on Saturdays and Sundays to sell their plants. They bring a van or pick-up with a cap over the bed. They have 4 large shade tents (greenhouses) at the nursery. Rich

    I would have been all over the vandas. Connie and would have been tugging on both ends of the tray saying...I saw it first!

    Wow! Thanks for sharing the great pics of all those lovely blooms. My favorite vendor is also at a flea mkt. in my area, a great little lady, and her prices are also quite reasonable for the quality of the plants. I'll try to remember a camera next time I visit!
    Cheers,
    Tony
