    Well, they were blue a few days ago, anyway. First person to correctly name both species will win 4 orchid species from my green house shipped to their home when weather permits. I'll try to pick plants suitable for your growing conditions. A forum donation would be a nice gesture.

    Winner must reside in the contiguous 48 states exclusive of Rhode Island.

    Both species are sympodial. One is Neotropical. Photos were made this morning.

    Spelling counts.

    A few personalities are disqualified. You know who you are.

    Looking on Troy's website is cheatin'.

    We always exclude Rhode Island from these kinds of contests. It's tradition. Plus... everyone knows they're not really an island. They're up to something sneaky.

    pfui!

    just this last election we decided not to remove the words "and providence plantations" from the official name of the state, not that that says anything about being sneaky, plus, one few mob guy on the streets after the big busts last week

    Is Papilionanthe vandarum an 'Ang'? The flowers are white, is the reason I ask.
