    Default For Maura: Onc. ornithorhynchum

    This lovely little plant was given to me by Maura. She got it on an orchid shopping trip we did together here in Puerto Rico. Maura, I am taking good care of it and it has bloomed with these beautiful delicate flowers and a wonderful scent. I sincerely hope that from a distance you can experience its beauty as a part of your healing process.

    Ceci! You are an angel! I KNEW you would be better with my orchids from Puerto Rico than I could ever be. I can almost smell that beautiful fragrance all the way here in Marco Island (Florida). Thank you SO much for posting such excellent photos. I was trying my best to remember it yesterday when I was describing it to a an orchid dealer at a local farmer's market. I bought an Oncid. Twinkle because I missed Puerto Rico so much.

    I will post it when I get a decent shot of it. Not nearly as pretty, and the fragrance is a bit heavier, but still fun - and it reminded me of you. You have made my day!

    Love to you and all my OT friends,

    Maura

    (By the way, has that "coerulea" Cattleya spiked for you yet?)

    Maura, I will send these photos to your email so that you can print them to show. The other plants are doing very well. All are growing new roots and establishing very well in their new pots. They are beautiful! The coerulea still hasn't spiked, but I know it will soon. I will let you know as soon as it does. My love to you.
