    interestingly, and though the sound of 8 new orchids sounds wonderful... there does come a time when a $400 acquisition doesn't seem crazy... (well..... so maybe I'm just trying to convince myself it's ok )

    That plant might be worth $400 and every penny of it. For such an oustanding plant, the idea is obvious. It is a breeding plant or a show plant. A show plant, winning an AM/AOS label, you can later sell divisions for $100 a piece, you will recover the investment with interest. As a breeding plant, well, no need to start on that. For example, I would cross it with a sanderianum to create a super Screaming Eagle. As you can see in my paph thread, my Screaming Eagle is a disappointment. Maybe that is due to inferior parents. Well, if you start with this amazing Berenice, the children must be spectakular! The bad news is I don't have a blooming size sanderianum to play with it... Hehhehehe...

    Well,

    Timmy-O, THE E-VEAL ONE,
    I have a previously bloomed sanderianum with a new growth. There might be a third growth but at this point it is just a stump at the crown. Maybe it will flower again in 2 years ... Surprised, huh? But 2 years is a very long wait. I am thinking about getting another one ... Please please and PLEASE talk me into buying another sandy, O-Timmy, THE E-VEAL ONE ... Hehehhehee!!!

    nah... no pressure... I mean 2 years isn't a long time... I mean, in that time, they will probably find the next great slipper -

    Paph timmy-o-ense

    which is has a blue pouch!!! (this pic was in no way photoshopped - I used a crappier program )

    Now Hoa, you know Norito must have tons of sandies - and maybe you could swing a deal, you know, buy the Berenice and some A1 Sandy pollen for a packaged price to create your super Screaming Eagle..

    Go on, what's another grand or two into the orchid collection.
