    Default surprize box

    Whee! I bid on a surprise box , and was lucky enough to win it! There was no knowing what was in it until I unpacked it to find five beauties inside. I snagged 2 phals (schileriana and manii), a Dend.gracilicaule, a masd. magdelana, and one I've never run into before, a Trichopilia hennisiana. Nothing in bud or bloom and some are just babies but I think I got a good haul.

    Congrats Cindi! That is always fun! We have a member at our orchid society that does a surprise box every year at our auction and it is always full of great orchids and accessories. What fun!

    Cheers,

    That looks like quite haul. The surprise boxes are always a draw at our auction--and usually jam packed with goodies. CLEARLY yours are the same.
