    Those are wonderful, Jordan! How great it is that you live in N.Z. and can grow these beautiful orchids... Does it ever freeze where you live? Betty :-)

    hi betty, yes it does freeze, every winter! after the weather we had last week, where food crops were destroyed and millions of lambs killed by heavy snow from a cyclonic system larger than aussie, resulting in skyrocketing food prices, i wasnt sure if my arachs would come up or not. But lo and behold!

    Sad to hear that, Jordan...Maybe you can get some beer & "invite" them to drown themselves! Your Friend, Betty...:-(

    lol its all good, they will come back, seeing as conditions in NZ are right for them. its not the first time either, including an incident at christmas involving a bottle of beer! =D just as well they had finished flowering, although i was looking for a pod or two to break open and spread.

    Well Jordan, I'm waiting to be told "where" you found one of NZ's more rare orchids growing...! Please DO TELL! I can hardly wait... ( And, I hope that you did indeed rescue them?! ) Betty :-)
