    Wow, now that orchid has color! Really nice! Are these hard to grow and bloom, Ron?

    Cheers,

    Ron,
    THat is lovely! At the AOS trustees meeting in Houston, Michael Tibbs from South Africa had flasks of these for sale. I was very tempted, but from what I understand they prefer cool temps and I just can't manage that. One member of our society--also there--purchased a flask and came up with an idea of a tray filled with constantly running cool water. We won't know if ti works for awhile yet, but it sounds interesting. The flowers are just lovely!
