@Gage, I bought it due to the pictures that were shown of it by the speaker. She is a botanist and lives in Columbia, She brought these from their stock. I can't wait to get to planting and mounting today!

Seems to be in the normal range for orchid purchases at a show. hahaha... Good for you!!
The only cure is to stay away from all orchid shows, orchid nurseries, big box stores that have suffering orchids that need rescuing and only enjoy new orchids vicariously here on this forum. If you feel the call of the orchid show or the orchid society then you must show up penniless. Failing all those preventative measures, there are worse "addictions" that are way more difficult to overcome and less beautiful so enjoy those orchids. - martha
I really don't see the problem...you got a nice set of plants and got to see hundreds of others to buy in the future...where's the problem?? Anything schomb that is full size has to be bought...unless it has a "not for sale" sign on it. (there is a local place that likes to make me nuts with plants that have "not for sale" tags) My husband used to ask me when I would have enough orchids...now he asks if the greenhouse is big enough. lol Silly guy doesn't realize there is so much room in the yard for more greenhouses. Problem? I just don't see it...
Thanks for the information Gage, she was the speaker that night and she does orchid research and conservation so I am confident she has the labeled correctly. I have them soaking in sugar water as she recommended to jumps start the cuttings. I am not afraid of the spike length since I grow outside and am partial to the larger orchids. I have a few schombos and Gramms, I may live to regret that statement! lolol My Oncidium Sharry Baby has 9 spikes now over three feet, it is taking its time with blooming but I think I saw a bud last night so YAY!
