    Red face Dendrochilum tenellum and wenzelli a coelogyne moor a lycaste shoalhaven two more

    Went to an orchid show this afternoon. Unfortunately I forgot my camera but I ended up with 6 more orchids. A dendrochilum tenellum, dendrochilum wenzelli a lycaste "shoalhaven", coelogyne mooreana, c. cristata and a stanhopea occulata. The D. Tenellum and D. wenzelli is flowering so I attached their photos......I really have to stop this.......but I told myself that last week when I ended up buying 4 more......

    I paid $25 for each which I think is already cheap as I went to a nursery some months back and they are $35 for a plant smaller than I got. So I am pleased with it

    Talking

    Thanks Ron. Yeah, I'm really happy with them and I think that's what matters. But another big orchid show is coming up this weekend at St. Ives, I wouldn't want to think how many orchids will come home with me then as I feel like a kid in a lolly shop every time I go to an orchid show....I should seek some help but I would rather use the money to buy more orchid....that's more sensible....I think...haha

    lol dito. I was given my acoridium tenellum, and it is fairly large, prob a clump about20cm in diameter, and i was told if i sold a 10th of it, i could get upwards of 35 dollars a pop.
    So yea, i think you got yours very cheap =D
