    Talking No I wasn't abducted by aliens.

    Hello OT peeps. Long time no see. Hope everyone is fairing well. I've been busy neglecting my orchids...apparently they're not p.o.ed at me enough to boycott me.

    Benign neglect works wonders for some orchids , some are not so forgiving.
    Beautiful display.
    Maybe the aliens watered them

    Don't know if anyone remembers this little resilient buggard, I posted a panicked 'I think I killed it' post in my first few threads. NOW, maybe someone can say for sure what it is.

    wow dazed...i even asked Angela for you...probably a year ago..so good to have you back...but for how long...our local orchid show was in october and the usual member from your society had a display as they usuallydo..michael burkette and wife etc....i see your plum tree dendros are in bloom...you may want to give that brassia a little less light...the leaves look yellowed from light stress and how is your myrmecophila rescues doing?

    Hey king! How goes it? I did shift it that was last yr's bloom. It's spikin again. Need to take better pictures when it blooms. The rescues are great, will take a few pics tomorrow. Had a bit of a termite infestation in the palm they were on but got that under control. How are things in your neck of the woods? What new finds have you dug up I my absence?
