    Smile My orchid-collection is growing!

    We had an orchid show in town this weekend. I came home with three new plants:
    1) Dtps. Hsinysing Maki 'Shotgun' x schilleriana 'Wan Dan'
    2) Sarcochilus hartmannii (about to bloom)
    3) Laelia tenebrosa

    I'm very happy about my new orchids!

    Don't believe anything they say that orchid can become an addiction. Its not true. its an urban legend....just keep buying what you like and soon you'll have a beautiful display of flowers. Congrats!!!

    I'm very happy about the new-comers! I'm looking forward to learning about the new species plants. They are always interesting as they have a real story to tell regarding their habitat, pollinators etc. The phal hybrid is also a lovely addition to my phal collection. Its spotty leaves are nice to look at any time, with or without blooms. Phals are always delightful! And there are so many different colors and types out there........

    I believe that it is a phalaenopsis schilleriana, a local species in the Philippines.
