    Default Saturday Greenhouse Visit

    Well, I know it isn't Monday but I trust you'll enjoy some color on an otherwise gloomy day.... there is one bright spot besides the flowers. Tomorrow I'll be at the Greater Lansing Orchid Show.... and maybe, just maybe, I'll take my camera along for the visit. I'm sure there will be others posting pics of the show.



    Anyway, back to the pictures ....








    Both of these are one year old keiki

    I've seen pictures of this Bulbo and some of the research I've done seems to think this one is a hybrid of makoyanum x aureum (http://www.orchidspecies.com/cirrhop...emakoyanum.htm) There was a post regarding this situation on another orchid forum I frequent.

    So what are your thoughts?????

    All I can say is, hybrid or not it's officially recorded by the AOS as makoyanum. Another with a flower quality award looks the same as mine. I've seen some pics of makoyanum with much narrower petals.

    Beautiful cym, Howard and love the Salu Peoker. How odd your Little Emperor .... one normal flower, one peloric and one with only one peloric petal. Quite strange.

    Last year, Paul, the mother plant had all peloric flowers. This year it hasn't flowered.... now that is strange!!!! You know you are the 1st to even notice the flowers!!!!! Have you gone to Lansing? I'm going around 2PM tomorrow.
