    Default NOID Schomburgkia

    Picked this orchid up at a garage sale 5 or 6 years ago, divided it and put half on the cabbage palm. Despite the cold winters the past two years it has decided to bloom for me.

    Love! I just commented on Connie's hybrid...I love the lips! My OH and I are debating moving to Florida. I don't think I have anything that couldn't stand the summers.

    What a fantastic plant and spike. Those ruffled, cork screwed flowers are quite a treat to the eye also. I often think big is better, but I would have a heck of a time fitting orchid and spike in my narrow greenhouse. The Gingers and Hibiscus already take up a lot of room, let alone other tropicals and orchids. AL
