    Default Latest Orchid Additions to my collection

    Last Sunday we went to a show hosted by the Philippine Orchid Society and at the same time meet up with a small
    group of Carnivorous Plants Hobbyist (We're planning to create a group). Anyways there we're tons of orchids in
    that show, the mother-in-law and the sister-in-law joined us and they we're in awe.

    Anyways this is what I ended up getting.

    Divisions of the following in bare root (as the blooming ones are way too expensive)
    BLC Christine Bersola
    BLC Malvarosa Sunset
    POT Gabriel Castro
    BLC Malvarosa King
    BLC Triumphal Coronation "SETO"
    LC Dorothy Fienne Sydney
    LC Norissama x 2

    Oncidium Wild Cat x 2 (In bloom will post photo later) -- I gave the other one to the neighbor
    Bulbophyllum maquilingense
    Bulbophyllum biflorum
    Trichoglottis latesepala (In bloom will try to take photo of it and post)

    Was given to me by a friend
    Trichoglottis philippinensis x 2
    Trichoglottis geminata x 2

    Paphiopedillum fowliei
    Paphiopedillum ciliolare
    Paphiopedillum noid -- Lost the name tag during the transport bummer. In bud, will post photo when it opens.

    Phalaenopsis equistris -- 2nd one, managed to kill the first one.
    Phalaenopsis intermedia -- 2nd one, managed to kill the first one.
    Phalaenopsis noid x 4 -- they're hybrid thats all i know.
    Dendrobium noid x 3 -- in bloom will post photo later.

    Psychopsis papilio (2 spikes wohoo)-- 2nd one, a replacement for the first one. But i was surprised to see the other day that the
    lone pseudobulb of the first one is still alive and is making a new growth yehey, good thing i just threw it at an empty pot.

    Arachnis flos-aeris -- you've already seen the photo of this from my ID thread.
    Ascocentrum miniatum -- with 3 growths

    a few dendrobiums and 1 vanda and 2 cattleya for the mother-in-law.

    And lots of pots and potting/mounting materials (CHC, CocoPeat, LECA, Coco Slabs, Wires etc)

    None orchids.
    Tillandsia noid x 2 (i think 1 of them is xerographica)
    Nepenthes alata x 2 (1 has a nice variegated form)

    And tons of Nepenthes Seeds. (hopefully with a high germination rate)


    And in all of these i still managed to forget buying that Brassia and Cymbidium. And also saw this plant called Passion Vine
    that I also forgot to buy. Well the show will last until Sept7, maybe we still have time to go back there and get more hehehe.
    Oh i can hear the wife yelling already, with that haul you still managed to forget?

    The car was totally packed that day, as we only have a regular sedan, and have 4 adult passengers and 2 kids. And not to mention the
    baggages of the inlaws (they spent the weekend at our house), and add to that these orchids and we are fully packed. There was a
    time when I was driving, that one of the spikes of Psychopsis went in to my nose. No wonder we lost lots of flowers that day, mostly
    from the Wild cat and the dendrobiums. Now we are contemplating the idea of buying a new car this time a bigger AUV just for this
    purpose.

    Got me thinking, for a Vanda lover, i never bought a single Vanda for myself, but i managed to buy some of it alliance. Phalaenopsis,
    Ascocentrum, Trichoglottis and Arachnis are part of the Vanda alliance right?

    Anyways surprisingly with all these plants and all we only spent roughly 4,000 pesos (US$80). So all in all I'd say it a great buy
    hopefully I wont manage to kill anymore of them hehehe.

    Oh and by the way, just to make things clear. I am not in stress this time.

    Wow, that is quite a haul. And I agree $80 is a great price for so many orchids. Do you have a picture of the car all filled up? I think it would be funny to see that. I look forward to seeing pictures of all your orchids.

    hi randy,
    nice buy!
    i would take the phal and tricho out of the vanda alliance, and check your ascocentrum, coz if its native then it would be the "aurantiacum".

    Fantastic HAUL!!!! I would have thought with that many orchids, you'd have to sell the mother in law

    I can't wait to see all those Paphs in flower!!!


    p.s. and I'm glad this was a fun purchase rather than a stress relief one
