    Default Dartmouth Orchids 3

    Here are the Phal shots...

    Oh yeah, and one Onc. that looks like it ate a small planet...
    Onc. sphacelatum. This fat boy freaked me out when I looked up. He's easily 4 feet across! I can't imagine what the flower spray (blanket) must look like! Lisa had left for the day before I discovered this overhead pachyderm, so I didn't get to ask her about it.

    Then an assortment of blooming Phals.

    And a lovely Phal. Golden Yew (Golden Peoker x Brother Yew).

    A very nice cluster of phals! But what happens to their leaves?

    Cheers. Hoa.

    That's a really good question, Hoa. I noticed the leaves also, but only later when I was alone snapping pics. Never got a chance to ask.

    Lisa was quite funny, though. She asked us how many we'd each killed. She wanted to show us her Drawer of Shame. I believe it's that place where name tags pass on to when a dear plant departs this world.

    She said if you haven't killed any plants, then you just aren't trying to grow. I've killed a handful, but I am kind of proud of my 'save' record. It does turn out, however, that Aaron...welll, let's just say...he's a virgin.

    I AM NOT!

    Hey, I thought that since I hadn't killed anything that I was doing a good job!! Actually, I end up with my co-workers' plants to revive, and so far only one has passed to the Great Compost Pile Beyond. I do have an Oncidium that is doing REALLY bad (evidently I should be proud to say this).

    oh gosh... if we're counting the passing of some of these precious in such a way... well I'd be a common street who... hmm, anyways, I use to put all the dearly departed's tag in my pencil case. BUT, after I had no more space for my pencils, I thought it best to just let go when these events happens...
