    Default Epi floribunda

    If you saw the thread with my Aerangis luteo alba v rhodosticta, I have a story for you...

    I had the fourth off and got back on wednesday to give my mounts a much needed drink after a day of no water. and then... It was gone! I hurried to the sales counter to see if anyone sold it. "Did you sell a little orchid that was growing on a piece of cork?!"
    "Yeah..."
    "Didnt you see the sold tag that documented its sale and display purpose only?!"
    "Mike(my manager) said it had been in there too long though..."
    "How much did you sell it for?"
    "Forty dollars."
    "I guess thats mine then right?"
    "Absolutely not, its your fault for displaying your orchids in the greenhouse!"

    So I talked to my manager after a crappy day of work since that happened in the morning, he told me I could take a plant out of the greenhouse. So this is what I got to replace it. Its not doing the trick, but I accept it non-the-less..

    I have another Aerg, but its not the same feeling. The one that was sold was really happy.

    Next time hang a tag on your plant that says:

    USDA QUARANTINE

    What a bummer, Sake! There have been a couple of similar stories here like that. As tempting as the growing environment is, I wouldn't want to take the risk with prized orchids.
