    Default Michael Koopowitz X roth--AT LAST!

    I saw this spiking this morning, and couldn't believe my eyes.

    SIX YEARS, it took, from just out of compot.

    Freakin' plastic Paphiopedilum damn-thing is finally in bud. I swear, waiting on these things makes me pull my freakin' hair out.

    It better not be a dog, I'll tell you what, it just better not be.....

    This is the first one spiking of 5, and I just *had* to take pics and put them up, proud papa that I am....

    *lights cigar*

    Thanks! I'll post when it opens--I'll finally have a pic for its web listing

    Gilda, that's crushed oyster shell for top dressing.

    Thanks, you guys. We're still 2-4 months away from opening, so a while still. No new growth yet, as far as I can tell....

    nice job Louis! (I bet you'll see blooms in 4-6 weeks). somehow I don't think there will be too many dogs from the grex. the one you sent here is plugging along with two new growths...hopefully it'll take a cue.
