    Cool Psychopsis Mariposa var Alba

    I have not posted in a few months so I will have several to show a few things in bloom. It's been a rough winter. I had bugs spreading some kind of bacteria and lost a couple dozen plants. I am working on repotting and evaluating each plant as I bring them out for the summer.

    Thank you...I've missed everyone too. I am working on getting back to my normal social self. lol Hermit girl here needs to get active online again. I have a tendency to go hermit from time to time. It's a good thing I have to get my hair cut and see the doctor from time to time or my sweet husband would never get me out of the house some months.

    I finally found a real nice Psychopsis Mariposa Alba from your neck of the woods and am hoping for a bloom or two soon. What a beautiful flower you have there. I hope summer is good to you and the orchids. Just take things easy and steady and I'm sure you'll do great! AL

    Repotting to me is such a joy. It's like knitting; when I am done for the day I feel like I accomplished something. There is something about handling each plant. My husband teases me for talking to the plant as I clean it up as if were a live child. I am the crazy plant lady. lol
