Hello All, I've been a hobbist orchid grower for about 15 yrs. but still quite the novice, I think. Mostly, I grow cattleyas and their alliance as they suit my growing conditions. Several, are vacationing outside and I have an Encyclia which is in bloom. I mis-labeled it Mabel Kanda but it is not and I can't find my label. Typical of me. Also, I'm a bird watcher/feeder along with cat lover and former R.N. I had forgotten about signing up for this site so please pardon my being remiss. Leeflea.
