    Default Schomburgkia superbiens v. alba New additions

    Lovingly referred to as "droppings", My friend Joe brought these to me at our meeting last night. Since I like the BIG GUYS he gladly shares with me to keep them going. As he said "most folks like the little windowsill orchids now". These little "droppings" measure 18 inches tall. I had to mount one and the other will quickly outgrow the 10 inch pot it went in. It's putting out 2 new leads.

    It was overflowing a 12 inch basket before he divided it. It had 5 spikes over 4 ft. long. It was quite the sight to see hanging in his greenhouse.

    Did you snap a photo? I bet that was amazing!

    Congratulations on the 'droppings'.

    I unfortunately didn't take my camera with me. I should have known better. He always has some of the most amazing things in his greenhouse.
