    Default New additions - orchid bug has bitten

    I have three new additions, Plectrelminthus caudatus, Christensonia vietnamensis, and an Angraecum Sesquapedale, pictures following, in that order I think.. The orchid bug has bitten here in Atlanta and I know have about as many orchids as I do Bonsai. I also got some duplicates one of which is Neo. neofalcata, but since I already posted a photo of the first one, I didn't include this one.

    Actually there are only two 'new' additions since as you'll see one of them is an agreacum sesquipedale. The new one is smaller although it has spiked at least once. The 'unruly' sesquapedale is going to be donated Monday at the Atlanta Orchid Society meeting. This new one is smaller, but still not small, but it is growing in a four inch pot. I plan on re potting it in a six inch clay orchid pot so it will stand up.

    Thanks, PhilllipName:  DSC_2804.jpg

    Looks like you made some nice additions. Wish we had sesquapedales donated at our OS meetings. Be sure to post again when you get them to flower. TFS

    Bad influence, Maura. (just kidding). Hey you really go for the exotic! Great choice. Been thinking of the sesquipedale for a long time but prices here are steep.

    Yew, I will be more than happy to send you my large (and unruly) one if I knew how to ship plants and get it through customs. Alas, I am no dealer, but I will favor you with photographs should either of them bloom, and should both bloom... well I'll have the big head. I really be an orchid man then. Thank you and all for the kind words. I appreciate it.
