    Wonderful story, Aaron, and so sorry for your loss. Your grandmother sounds like a neat person, and I'm sure she was very proud of you. You learned a lot more than just orchids from her; be sure to pass it on when the time comes. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks all! I do miss her, but I try not to feel sorry. I am just very grateful that I had the chance to have her in my life, and to learn the things that she had taught me. I do know that even in death, she is still watching over me. There are sometimes that when I am in the greenhouse there will be a refreshing breath of air all throughout the greenhouse even when there is no wind present. I am just grateful that she is in a better place! I would like to think that she is back in the time when she grew up in the keys. A time when they were still untouched, and as much of paradise as paradise can be!

    As a follow up on the size of this plant I took this picture. That's my fiance, and she is 5ft 10in, so you could have a reference to it's size!

    Hope she doesn't mind!

    i am happy for you that you were able to spend some time with your grandmother before she passed away. can you give more info about the procedure of growing from seed? How do you do it? I am very interested in it.
