Sep. 4, 2015 [update] : We have another flower from the Phal. tetraspis!
May 12, 2015 [update]: The Phal. tetraspis produced another flower from the same inflorescence. This time it has the tiniest red mark, tho. So cool!
Mar. 28, 2015: It’s that time of the year again: the Michigan Orchid Society Palm Sunday Show. We took the opportunity to trade a couple plants to Yvonne to get a piece of her beautiful peloric Phal. equestris plant.
One of the reasons why we enjoy volunteering to help set up the show is getting first look at the plants that the vendors bring in for sale. Ron Ceisinski (Taylor Orchids) happened to be one of the vendors at the show this year and he had this plant that we couldn’t resist buying.
The MOS display this year had an Aztec/Mayan theme to it and they needed a lot of green plants to fill in some spaces. Larry and I helped pick up (and put back) some larger plants from Glenda’s house. For our help, she gave us a piece of her awarded Sobralia.
