The era of gathering equestris from the wild is long gone; my supply comes from a dealer who sources them from small growers in the Ilocos provinces.


    When the bud s opened it was a very pleasant surprise to have a spike of gold-lipped blooms.
    This is a nice specimen plant! Where did you get it? I think baka pupuwede magpabili sa iyo.....

    Default At that time yes, I got 30 plants from her.

    I have more than 50 equestris in all, currently.
    BTW, tomorrow will be the first day of the annual show ofthe Philippine Orchid Society. I am sure there will be lots of equestris there.

    Acquired less than a year ago; some are in baskets, but this one is mounted. Because of lack of space, the schilleriana and this plant have become stuck together.

    Did you bought that in the commercial area of the POS orchid show?

    Sa Baclaran ka na lang or sa Lung center weekend market , The plants there is cheaper .

    I went there last week pero very few plants and orchids were there since some of the stallholders will be going to the orchid show tomorrow.

    I bought a specimen size Dendrobium aphyllum "white variety" kasi we had this pink one . Pero wala pang flowers kasi March or April pa ang blooming time nyan. So wait and see muna ako.

    I am also planning to buy Dendrobium anosmum var" alba "or" virginalis" or "dearei"

    if i can see one. Our Palm tree is growing and i need to mount some in the upper trunks.

    Mr. ntgerald do you have any pictures of Hoyas? I needed some pictures since i was in charge of recommending a hoya stamp in the Philatelic division of the Post office.
