    Default Paph Sand Dollar

    I thought about saving my favorite for last, but I just cannot wait. Renee says it has "Tigger's nose" as in Winnie the Pooh.

    It is primulinum x bellatlum ‘Alba’ and was in spike when I got it this last Summer.

    I used to have that hybrid years ago when I was a neophyte...it bloomed twice then root rot set in. (I didn't realize they preferred potting every year or two). Thank-you for the memories!

    Yes, from Los Osis. It is one of the special ones that they substituted in for me. I wanted some yellows and they found three for me that fit the cost profile. I still have one more of those to post in a day or two. (gotta ration the candy, you know!!!)

    Dammit! I hate when that happens.

    Oh...sorry, Steven! I'm just going to call you Geck. Is that ok? Hopefully the visuals will help keep me from embarassing myself yet again...not likely!

    Be sure to look for the thread where I chide fellow members for not getting people's names right...
