    Default I Was Very Bad

    Yes I was very bad today.... Normally I don't post stuff like this 'cause it just isn't my personality to show off what I purchase but I ordered some chids from a vendor in Hawaii (list attached).... it's my 2nd order. The first was just a trial run and I only got 4 Paphs. They were just wonderful.... packed perfectly in excellent condition and 3 of them had multiple fans of new growth in 4" pots and I expect them Friday morning. Some will be in spike. However, I'm expecting most will not at this time of year. So does anyone live close to me with a greenhouse... I think I'm really gonna need some space this fall!!!! And NO,I'm not sharing my new arrivals with anyone... so there!!!!

    Paph Fairy Dell
    Paph. chamberlainianum
    Paph. Grant Szabo
    Paph Spicy Bull
    Paph venustum (Blatant x 'Constant')
    Paph Druid Spring
    Paph Tom Fujiwara
    Lycaste shimayuki
    Lycaste Kurt Servos
    Lycaste macrophylla

    You are a great grower, Howard. You can bloom them!! I have seen all the beauties you have posted here over the years. I can't wait to see the Paph. Lynleigh in Pink in bloom. I want that one too.

    Not to worry. There's always more room somewhere. If you bloom those as well as you do your others it will be quite a show. Especially looking forward to seeing Cattleianthe Sky Blue Brazil.
