    Default Arachnis... I GOT MY SPIDERS!!!

    so last week i just went walking through the market to see if we had gotten any of those fancy phaius hybrids i've been drooling over... for some reason they havent made it over here... BUT by accident, one of my favorite sellers had not one, but two arachnis! first time in 8 years of near weekly visits to the market have i seen one... well, yall know me... i bought them both!
    i've been super busy... workin harder than patpong ladyboy on a friday night in december (for those of you who dont know, THAT'S WORKIN HARD!)... so my pictures are few and not so great, but i am so happy to have these guys... been wanting one ever since i saw ron's ages ago!
    i swear this forum is a danger to us all! my balcony is jam packed!!

    BTW Shane, we like to refer to it as the 'Scorpion Orchid', its botanical name notwithstanding.

    u know i find it strange because this plant even though it is a oldd hybrid it is so popular in my country for manyy years...people jus share pieces like wildly...even people who dont grow orchids have Maggie Oei in a hedge or against a wall somewhere..come Trinidad ill give u all 10 pieces each for free..seriously
