    Default A trip to an orchid store

    I had my camera along yesterday and snapped some pictures. They are mostly phals...a couple catt's, one vanda....They have just moved so everything is a little messy. I thought you all might enjoy a little color to brighten up the chilly "almost" New Year.
    I really missed you all over the holidays....Happy New Year friends!

    This little guy came home with me...the pot is a 1 1/2 inch size. I should have taken pics at the other nursery too, but they were all locked down for the cold weather. Maybe next time...

    I also bought a couple at the second nursery; first is a paph delanatii cross and the second is a splash petal; Rsc. Chan Hsiu Jewel 'Shang Mei' . The second I'll repost when it blooms.

    Nice find, Connie! I am interested to see when your delanatii cross blooms. I have a delanatii, but it is so small compare to yours.

    I got this one for less as they hate to keep them out of bloom. There were two others left, but this one had the biggest fans. Besides, I love the spots under the leafs...so cool.
    Went outside and pulled out the tag...then looked it up; it's Paph. Ho Chi Minh (Paph. Delanati x Paph Vietnamense) and I must say I am going to try very hard to keep this one alive. I hope to bloom it, even the bud looks cool!
