    Cool More orchids today!

    I got another order in today and wanted to share the newest additions.

    I had a Den. unicum once and it didn't do for me...but I wanted to try one more time. This cute lil' guy came in with 2 buds!

    Den. unicum


    This encyclia cross has 7...count 7 new growths! So exciting:

    Epi. alatum x enc. bractescens


    Close-up


    This lil' 2" pot has a plant with 2 spikes! Unbelievable!!

    Enc. ceratistes




    Finally I got my hands on two very nice Encyclia bractescens...why two? Because I want to combine them together. What do you think of me putting them in a treefern pot together as shown below?

    Enc. bractescens


    Treefern pot w/ hanging contraption


    Yay!

    I'm guessing they will love the treefern... You got some very nice plants!

    You are on a roll, Shann .... When will you stop?
    The worst part is that looking at the pictures of your new purchase create a strong shopping envy as far as I'm concerned.
    Beautiful new plants as usual!

    I did finally pot the two bractescens into the treefern and they look cute together. Thanks all for the positive comments. Lambe I think you should stop resisting your urge to shop for orchids and buy some new guys...lol.

    Who said anything about resisting?
    I have been buying and pre ordering as if I had all the space in the world!
    I have to rethink my windowsill/growing space to accomodate the newcomers.
