    Your orchids are beautifull, I love them and I am so sorry to hear that some of them are gone. Don't be so upset. Build your new orchid paradise. On the bright side, when you lost them you will love them more than ever, you will be more happier when you grow new ones.

    What a nice thing to offer! Very cool, Sake!

    How terrible, Lien. I sincerely hope the damage is not as bad as it seems. Hopefully many have survived; I'm sure they were healthy to start with and that may have help them pull through. Please let us know.

    Luckily, today it seems that many of the anceps will be okay, the new growths are all gone but the old bulbs are recoverable.

    Many of the cattelyas though are totally gone.

    Thank you sooooo much for your offer. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the initial assessment that the anceps will be okay holds up! Some of them will be set back a bit but better than losing them altogether!
