    Default Zygos and Banfieldaras

    The Orchid Conservatory here is worth the trip alone - it's completely species and conservation-oriented and has the added value of being GORGEOUS! Our big Exhibit here runs from early February through April and I can't express hoe phenomenal an experience that is. As you may have seen in another forum thread, I acquired a stunning cymbidium from the plant sale at the end of the exhibit - which really started this whole addiction. What zygo is this? It's so pretty - even if sunburned - I actually have managed to burn some of my catts, so you're in excellent company. The following are a couple of photos from the Conservatory - thought you might like the zygo especially. The pink spike is from my cym.

    It takes a little work getting used to posting photos, but it's worth it - check the forum thread on posting them - it has pretty specific directions.
