    Herbs and spices do more than just flavor food. They help you cut back on unhealthy ingredients, such as salt, sugars and saturated fat.

    Hi Angraecoid lover. New, but obviously not a newbie! PLEASE see "new forum member" intro. Serious orchidist and a nut about Angraecoids. Know how to research as I have the market leading book on research methods, but finding rare orchids is a challenge. Network-based but not well publicized. Guess a trip to Africa (and I know the distributors in Malagasy: Repoblikan'i Madagasikara). Best regards, Don

    Ca va, je ne suis pas français mais france dans mon coeur. I think we should become acquainted. I just posted on the new member forum. I look forward to sharing Angraecoid information with you. I am not an expert. But I know orchids well. I just "coverted" (coverté) to a whole different group of orchids. And, they are your favorites.

    Hope that all is well in Puerto Rico, including you, birds and orchids!

      Thanks. The birds were moved to a reinforced building and were safe during the path of Irma. The orchids weathered the storm without damage, even the ones that were not moved to a safe place. I used to put all the plants inside. It was just too much, now I put them on the ground and that has been enough to spare them any wind damage.

    Look on the web.orchid flower anatomy. There you see the column with the pollenia which you know how to knock off on top. Directly underneath this area on the column is the stigma which is often sticky and is where you need to stick the pollenia to fertilize the plant. The pollenia should stick on here for you if the flower is ready. Then after a few days the flower will fold up if you got this done correctly.

    Marni: I don't know if I'm ready to deal with plants right out of the flask. Is it very difficult/any special considerations? How many years to bloom? I'm a senior citizen. God I crack myself up.
    1. Marni
      Lycastes are not easy to get out of flask. I'd say 3 to 5 years to bloom. I too am a senior citizen and still making crosses.

    Marni: You seem to be the go to gal for Lycaste Skinneri Alba. Do you have any of these plants for sale?
    I'm losing my mind trying to find it. My wife's from Guatemala and I'll be there 6/21/17 but I'm told you can't buy them. It's illegal as it's the national flower. No wonder my brother in law gave me "alba" cuff links. lol
    1. Marni
      I only sell plants on ebay, but I do sell flasks and I have skinneri alba in flask. Not sure if I have any that are ready to come out of flask, but if you would be interested, I could check.

      I don't think it isn't illegal to buy them, it is probably illegal take it out of the country.

    Thanks for the info. Looks very interesting. Wonder which type of air conditioners it will work with. Some do not work well in a hot area.

      I wonder if you told them what you were trying to do and where you are located, perhaps they could suggest specific models?
