    Thanks a lot for sharing! I've never been to a nursery like that. It must be nice living in the tropics.

    thanks for uploading all those shots. score on the orange mokara! careful with the bowringiana, i had a big one once, it got so huge i divided it into 4 pieces and gave them all away. they just get too big for an apartment dweller.

    Shouldn't be a problem...i've got a large greenhouse and a nice big back porch where it can grow as big as it wants. lol I love the big ones..it's my downfall. But last year I found a way to sit the cattleya section up where one huge area is just one shelf so they can be as tall as they want and nothing is there to crimp there style.

    I'm sure I couldn't afford to walk into those green houses! I'm both sorry and glad I don't live where there are so many beautiful orchids readily available! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, what an orchid paradise. If only the UK had nurseries like that. Beautiful Den - I would have chosen that one too.

    that orange mokara is fab. amazing color. with all these vanda types out there, if i could grow them all outside, i'd go with vanda types over dendros any day. fortunately, no one ever needs to make such a silly decision like that!
