    Jojo, I still have to work on my orchid identification skills, I hope I can improve on it when I finally get a chance to grab Jim's new book next week.

    Default just a little update and a couple of things...

    Mabuhay!

    Thank you all for the appreciation and inputs regarding this wonderful hobby of ours. Workload is coming soon so my time for the orchids will be greatly affected. Anyway, here's a little addition from the Orchid and Garden show that ended today :

    miniature catts (Php50.00 or $1.50)



    I was able to meet with a fellow orchid hobbyist by the name zildjian. We had fun and he had fun buying so many orchids for his collection and business.

    I only bought two orchids since my focus is on gathering many scented plants as possible just like this one :
    Nicaraguan Jasmine


    I now have 5 scented flowers in the garden namely : Kamuning (local name), Rangoon Creeper (niyog-niyogan local term) plus the other 2 plants and the nicaraguan jasmine.

    --to be continued

    bought two dwarf papayas that will be planted in the garden maybe by tomorrow.


    i cut down my huge banana plants to give way to more satisfying ones like the saba and latondan. don't worry some of the leaves and trunks will be converted into an organic fert.


    Some of my ferns:


    this one needs additional TLC since its been left too long in the sun.

    I have Quisqualis indica (Ragoon Creeper) It is a stunning plant. With the tri-colored blooms. Did you know that the nut is edible? The fruit tastes sort of like almonds.

    Wow! What is that blue flower up there?

    Your orchids look great, but there is one in a plastic pot that has a black pseudobulb that looks like black rot. I would cut that off and put some fungicide on the wound and the entire plant. Black rot can go through your entire plant and kill it very quickly. Be sure to sterilize your clippers before and after. I have lost a lot of leads this summer from rot.

    I bet that banana tree will come back if you don't dig up the roots. Those guys are pretty resilient if they have good roots.

    cheers,

    Mabuhay!

    @cdayinflorida...thank you. Wow, thanks for the extra input regarding ragoon creeper. I really love the smell of the flowers, actually, a friend of mine was able to buy a double-petalled ragoon creeper and now his entire gate is covered with its flowers.

    @cattan...thanks. But you know us orchid lovers....we always find ways...no matter what...we will always find ways. hehehehhee

    @zozzl...thanks for the heads-up. Actually, i was planning to tranfer them in their new spot by Saturday, i was just acclimatizing them for at least a week in my environ but since you mentioned one of our toughest enemies the "black rot" well, i have to do it tomorrow. thanks

    @BD...i have plans for the banana....its just that i'm still gaining some strength to pull everything up. My back is still aching including my hands from using a machete.

    thank you all.

    Godbless
