    What a great way to grow orchids! I've been searching for a nice large branch to mount some orchids on. Yours are looking just amazing! Thanks for sharing...

    Thanks all. Delilah, the Phals on the bamboo are the remnants of my Phal equestris. The mother plant died and those are its keikis, the other one is Phal curno cervi, its spiking for the first time . Cj, don't you have typhoon/hurricane in Florida? I got mine after the typhoon, after the road cleaners cut them up, I'll get a few before the truck comes and take them away to the land fill.

    Raver, all you need is a trip to one of those orchid shows in America. For me it took me ten years, but then I killed maybe just as much.
