    Default Prosthechea cochleata

    When I first joined my local OS. I met a member that lived fairly close to my home. She invited me over to see her collection and gave me this plant. We are still friends and she cares for my plants and animals when I am on vacation and I do the same for her.

    You are so luck to have someone to watch your plants when you are away. We just came back from vacation and the non-orchid person watching our place watered a couple of my milts. to death

    Yes, you are fortunate as long as she doesn't go on vacation at the same time! That's the dilemma I'm facing when I go on my next trip.

    On another note, I didn't realize that this one had been taken out of Encyclia too. Good to know.

    She is now retired and wintered away last winter. I do have a backup.

    Beautiful. It is so good you have someone you can trust to look after things when you are away. That is so hard for us since we have so many pets and a greenhouse. It asks quite a bit of a friend to take on that responsibility.

    Cheers,
