    Talking New additions to the orchid collection

    Today was the 13th annual Orchid Society of the Ozarks Orchid Auction. Each year, for the last several years, I get to see Gin at the auction and we trade some plants. This year, like the ones before, she put a huge smile on my face. Look at what she brought for me:

    Phal. Kahurangi (Phal. Brother Passat x Phal. Brother Lawrence)
    Coryanthes feildingii
    Coryanthes bruchmuelleri 'Thulsa Doom' x self
    Bulb. Ray Gabaldon (Bulb. burfordiense x Bulb. lobbii)
    Phal. celebensis
    Phal. stuartiana
    Eria carinata
    Phrag. Mary Bess (Phrag. besseae x Phrag. caricinum)
    Brassavola nodosa
    Brsdm. Wild Warrior (Onc. leucochilum x Brs. Stardust)
    Stellamizutaara Kelly (B. nodosa x Ctna. Keith Roth)

    And, during the auction, we didn't fight over a plants as per usual, but I did leave with a couple really cool new stanhopeas that I won during the bidding :
    Stanhopea Assidensis (Stan. tigrina x Stan. wardii)
    Stanhopea insignis

    Gin brought her duct tape to tape my bidding arms down, but didn't need it this time. I only planned to get the Stan. Assidensis, but bid on the Stan insignis because I got confused. (happens alot ) but I am so glad I got both. Gin and Sarah (Sadie) both won some cool orchids too and we hardly bid against each other.

    All in all it was an excellent day. We had a lot of fun and all left with a bunch of orchids. I cannot wait to post some photos when things start blooming. Thanks to Sarah for her work in contacting vendors and arranging the auction!! And thanks to Gin for being such a wonderful friend. It was so good to see her today!

    Cheers,
    BD

    Brsdm. Wild Warrior --This is a cool plant Bruce, the black bars on the green blooms are cool! Then again, I'm sickeningly addicted this genus.

    The Brassavola is sweet too. Saw the big pics you posted of it somewhere. Congrats and keep us posted on them!

    Bruce actually took me outside to see his car full of orchids--I was tempted to sneak back out there and snatch the nodosa -- it was incredible!

    Yeah. His pic of it hanging in his greenhouse sent it straight to the top 5 on my wishlist.

    some haul! I have Stellamizutaara and love its pastel delicate flowers, Mine is on the window sill and I hope it produces yet this year. It is difficult finding info on it but I hve mine in high light (some sun) and water when it is quite dry. Do you think this is beneficial ?
