Jenn's orchids hit the road!

Jenn will be leaving for England in September to study for one year, so when we were in Tofino a couple of weeks ago we brought back one dozen of her orchids to look after for the next year.

A number of the orchids are plants that I also have in my collection, but among her unique plants I get to care for a Phrag. longifolium, Paph. argus and sukhakulii, and a Psycopisis and Maxillaria negroides.

The exciting news is that just a few days ago, I noticed a flower spike on the Phrag. longifolium!! It is developing fairly quickly.

Gosh, you must post the pictures when it blooms. I love phrags in bloom. Mine are somewhat temperamental in terms of blooming!

Funny thing is - this plant had a near death experience over the winter...and until only a month ago I assumed it was dying a slow death!
