    The problem is during the week, I have to be in Pasadena where I work. On weekend, I would go to Costa Mesa where it is more relaxing. The majority of my orchids are in Costa Mesa and the greenhouses are there too. My parents look after my collection when I am away. They like plants and orchids too!

    This document is actually a photocopy of the orginal print. So there is no electronic version that I am aware of.

    If you have a east facing patio, that is great news! There are a lot of things you could do and lot of orchids could be grown. Since you could grow cymbidiums on that patio, you could experiment by placing other orchids there. To bloom many orchids, you need lot of light WITHOUT BURNING THEIR LEAVES. So check how many hours per day that your patio gets full sun? Is your patio shaded? Maybe a slight remodel of your patio is needed to get more light to go through or a visit to a nursery supply store to purchase a better shade cloth (75% for summer, no shade or 55% for winter, 55-65% for spring).
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Tol. Golden Sunset 'Orchidglade' SM/SFOS

    Vive L'Onc is right!!! Thank you all for looking and support/contributing pictures! Hehehe!!

    Of course, our equitant safari can not end with such meager offering! Many equitants have been in bloom for weeks but I haven't gotten around to post their pictures! I am surprised by the longevity of their blooms! So enjoy!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Onc. Sharry Baby 'Sweet Fragrance' AM/AOS

    We will stay away from equitants for a while even though more are in bloom!
    This oncidium is a classic and every collection should have at least one of these Sharry Baby plants. Very floriferous with hundreds of amazing vanilla-chocolate scented blooms!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Brassia Rex 'Sakata' AM/AOS

    Another classic oncidiae. This plant appears to be a tetraploid (as a result of the meristeming process) since the petals/sepals are a bit fatter than a few other Rex I have seen. And the pseudodobulbs too. They are so fat. I rescued this plant a few years back. It is happy now and decides to bloom this year so the spike is not as spectakular as it should be! Maybe next year!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Oncidium splendidum

    A mule ear oncidiae. I was surprised to see it bloom, the plant is still very small. It is supposed to have 3-5 feet long spike with tons of 2-3 in. flowers!

    Default Odontoglossum wyattianum

    A gorgeous cool-growing oncidiae from the cloud forests. I am very pleased with the flowers from this plant this year! Very large flowers, biggest size I have seen from this species, with amazing looking lip! Intriguing fragrance as well.
    Cheers. Hoa.
