    Default New Orchid Arrivals Today

    Today, my three new wonderful orchids arrived. All look pretty healthy, except for a few yellowish leaves on the compot. They will all (except for the zygo) be repotted, as soon as my supplies arrive this weekend.

    I just gave them all a nice drink, and now have to find a place to put them until they're ready to go into the orchid room.

    All were beautifully and carefully packaged, which was a relief, since I'd never dealt with this seller before (online).

    And those two packages contained:

    When these bloom, they should look like this:

    This is the compot that has nine plants. I'll work on repotting them as soon as my supplies arrive.

    I'm a happy girl today!!

    Yeah, you just gotta love the unpacking. LOL Now I know what I could do with all the shredded paper I have.

    Shann, I hope yours arrive soon. Can't wait to see them.

    Wonderful Anne, Your new arrivals look great. Patience is a hard one I am struggling to amster but the orchids arent giving me a choice they will bloom when they are good and ready

    Oh, I love opening a new box of orchids--I am sighing vicariously. Those look like great choices too!
