    My husband came home today after a 4 day orchid exhibition in Belgium. He had brought me a little birthday gift with him. I turned 31, 14/4.

    The plants were all amazing! Most of them were from NT Orchids Malaysia

    I was lucky and had some help with planting.

    Happy Birthday. NTOrchids has some unusual plants. They were at the WOC in Miami.

    Hmmm. My husband would never buy me orchids. Claims he's got no idea what I want or need. Did you send him with a list? Cool haul!

    What fun! You obviously had a happy birthday. Have you put together a list of everything you received? I'd love to see it.

    Well aren't you just the luckiest person in the orchid world! Hey, I'd be happy with just the epiweb. Happy birthday a little late. I want to know what you got, too.

    I'd strangle my grandmother for B. adenambon. And I'd strangle her again for B. sillemianum
