    I think we need to organize a field trip. Permission slips, everyone?

    My mother in law would never sign my permission slip. I have about 175 orchids and she thinks I have 174 too many. I will just forge her signature.

    We have a staghorn on treefern that my partner bought at a show...money could have been spent on orchids! I do love it but would prefer it be on the sort of mount shown here or a wire box. Anyone with suggestions on how to move it is welcome to chime in! I agree that yours isn't a straight bifurcatum.

    Wow!

    Jonada - Don't you think Bruce has a moral responsibility to ensure that all these babies go to good homes, where they might become friends with certain compatible orchids?

    Don't shoot me, but since they are like weeds that clog-up pots, I just pull them out and throw them out. Usually the leaves break off and the roots hang on. They are pretty tough. After it warms up, I could save some for sharing if time and energy allows.

    cheers,
    BD

    Okay, Bruce - you're halfway off the hook here.
