mrspontiac's growing list



In the order I aquired them... I may need help with the grammar that goes along with the names...

1. Phal NoID
2. Encyclia rufa - rufous butterfly orchid
3. Encyclia rufa - rufous butterfly orchid - a division from #2
4. BLC. Hawaii Stars
5. Cattleya NoID

I think I need more orchids?

sounds like you're off to a great start! Encyclia rufa is an unusual "first orchid". I usually only see it in Encyclia fanatic's collections. Interesting choice. I cantell it will be interesting seeing your plants as you post.

Cheers!!!

Great choice. I'm sure you will have more orchid as you go along.

Cheers!

Haha...I picked it up at Lowe's when I got the Catt and the Hawaii Stars. It and the Hawaii Stars were the only ones in the orchid section that were really different from the rest of the selection. I may be wrong, but I thought I read somewhere that the Hawaii Stars is a kind of Catt. I just thought the image on the labels (I know it may not be true to the actual plant) of both were so interesting that I wanted to see what came of them. I had no idea it was an unusual first orchid.

That's a nice list for someone just starting out. I am sure it will grow quickly, since you will have OG and your dad's head to pick.

It wouldn't let me edit my list... I'm just adding my new Den.

Yes that's what i thought. Hmm but i'm sure getting a few smaller ones will not affect the whole process of moving. It's better to pack them nicely in a box for transportation & any loose space requires filling up. So to fill the box up nice & snugly, just buy a little more.

Congrats on the new addition.

cheers!

Yes Benetay...that's what I was thinking...I have to be sure to have enough orchids to fill the box so they don't go falling over or rolling around... I might need one or ten more...

Congrats on the new addition. You are going to really like it. I have that one, and it looks nice and pure.

I will also be moving within the city, soon. But can you imagine, all these shows coming up, how is it possible to not buy??? Can deal with packing later, maybe.
