Jun. 19, 2014: Larry’s Orchids and Tropicals always seem to have something new and today was not different. They have a whole flat of Dracula lotax! It immediately reminded us of the rescue one we got very early in our orchid journey (story told in this post). In fact, it was one of the plants we got the first time we discovered Larry’s. The plants they have now are leaps and bounds bigger and healthier than the one we got before (it was a rescue after all) and although our original one is still thriving and growing happily, we couldn’t resist buying a big younger bro for it.
