    [quote=Hoa Tony Nguyen]Hi Julie and Timmy,

    I am an Orchid-o-holic as well. First step toward recovery is admitting the addiction.

    BTW, going shopping for orchids with Diane, somehow made me spending less money! Do you want to do this again sometime, dear Diane?

    LOL! That's because you were enjoying purchases vicariously through me - - oh, Diane, thats a really good price, but look, there's a decent sized seedling over there for only $150!!!

    Well, sure, I was enjoying it through you!
    BTW, did the critter leave that prized purchase alone? I hope it did since I fear for the precious "seedling"! How are other plants? The bareroot plants, that you bought, they are OK?
    Cheers. Hoa.

    The prize seedling did survive, and the bare root babies seem to be doing okay - see photos below.

    Oh Diane,

    Poor Hoa is so conflicted! He loves your darlin's and wants no harm to come to them...

    ...But, if bigfoot happened to come back out tonight and chow on your entire lot of new purchases...well then, there'd be no recourse other than to take you back out shopping.

    Which, it seems he loves to do!

    Julie

    PS - I heard a rumor that Hoa breeds Doberman Wabbits, and that a few haven't been seen around his place over the past few nights...

    They looks great Diane, so BIGFOOT's ravage was limited to the succulent plant that are used to make ice cream by people down south! I am happy to see so much light illuminating on those two australian orchids. They love that. You also did great on potting the bareroot ones. I am so glad to see that picture. But I don't see the brassia verucosa, it is also another outdoor growing orchid as well. I also have a suggestion. Since the oncidium flexuosum and brassia verucosa need more water, you might want to use the other kind of pots like the one you use for the Dendrobium delicatum. These two species would appreciate a bit more moisture and that pot with more aerating holes on the side might make the medium dry out too quickly.
    Oh, BTW, Tim, I think that I know the variety of the speciosum that she bought, most likely to be speciosum var. speciosum.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I didn't have much choice of pots, as I was waiting for some to come in to my local nursery that I normally use. I have them now so will repot those into more 'moisture retentive' pots. I usually save the air slit ones for my catts.

    I hope you are right about the speciosum, the tag says Dendrobium Sepciosum, and then something underneath it in Japanese..... I'll have to take it (the tag) with me on the next trip to Tokyo to get it translated..

    hmm, maybe I'll do a new thread on what an uncontrolled orchid-a-holic I have been...
