It's a Keeper

 This is Neil's 'Wham Bam'! Not bad, eh?

SJ is growing this rather stunning hybrid. I couldn't help but notice the unusual color combination with this flower. It seems like a good strong grower also. The hybridizer that uses the "Neil's" name can also be found selling other lovely hybrids on ebay periodically. I've always been happy with the plants I've gotten from that source.

Anyone else a fan of the fantasy flowers??? Click on the photo to enlarge it.

This and That

I was so excited to get the Cymbidium to bloom with my "living room" conditions and temperatures that a few posts ago I showed the buds forming along with the little drops of liquid (guttation). Well, here are the blooms now opening. I think it's a grand success considering some of my other attempts at orchids are..... uh.... shall we say...... not as grand!
