    Default I swear i just went for orchid ferilizers!

    so i went to the flower market "just to get fertilizer" but i ran into some really great deals... a phrag that was super discounted cuz the seller's dog bit the flower BUT it has a second bud coming in behind it! yall feel free to help ID it if you can! a beautiful yellow calanthe and one more den spectabile (one a little farther along than the 2 young pups ive got already! and all for under 10USD$ !!!
    and yes, but i am bragging a bit ;-)

    Nice catch ! I am eagerly awaiting the Calanthe to bloom. The plant with the pouch bitten flower is a maudie type Paph. and not a phrag.

    I can't grow any of my orchids outside because of the ICKY british weather. So, its an artificially controlled extention. I just love to see orchids in their peak esp. in natural conditions.
