    Default A few things in bloom (or nearly) in my display area

    Hi all,

    You have seen some of these in other threads, but just thought I'd post a photo of my display area. I certainly wouldn't seriously try to grow orchids on the buffet, but to my surprise, I actually have had Phals throw up the odd spike here on occasion.

    At any rate, from left to right: Paph Bo-Ying Chow; Tolumnia Jairak Rainbow X Catherine Wilson; Tolumnia Popoki 'Mitzi' (not quite in bloom); Phal Brother Sara Gold 'Sogo' (mostly hidden by the Popoki); Phal amabilis; Phal Ever Spring Gentle 'De Leon'; Potinara Tiny Titan; Phal Cordova; Paph hennisianum X fowliei; Brassanthe Maikai 'Mayumi'; & Phal Minho Lit Rose. The final one is my first ever Phal, and indeed orchid, purchased in early 2003. I'm not saying I haven't killed a lot of orchids since then, because I sure have, but my original Phal is still with me--and I have it to blame for starting this addiction!

    Cheers,
    Rob
