Sept. 21, 2014: When summer comes, most people get excited for all the summer activities they can do. It’s kind of a bummer for us since that means a break from the regular monthly orchid society meetings. As summer fades, the weather outside gets cooler, and the orchid society meetings come back!
Today is the first Michigan Orchid Society (MOS) meeting after the summer break and it was fun as usual. The raffle table was overflowing with interesting plants and we were fortunate to have been able to win a few.
Milt. hybrid (Belle Glade x Sandy’s Cove) ‘Karen’ x (Shaine Gold x William Kirch) ‘Midas’. That’s what’s on the tag that came with this plant. After a little bit of research, Milt. Belle Glade x Sandy’s Cove = Milt. Puna Cove. Milt. Shaine Gold x William Kirch = Milt. Shaine’s Star. Milt. Puna Cove x Shaine’s Star = Milt. Puna Gold
The speaker for this meeting was Marni Turkel who also spoke at the Greater Lansing Orchid Society meeting yesterday. After sleeping on it, Larry decided to buy a couple of the little plants from Marni today.
(picture from Internet) We had actually picked up a Lepanthes caprimulgus from Ecuagenera at the MOS Palm Sunday Orchid Show earlier this year (story told here) but we thought it would be cool to compare if there would be any difference in the flowers of this one.
