Okay folks today I went to the National Capital Orchid Society annual show. I am a member of the society but due to health issues and work had not ben too active this year.
Apparently the owner of a cp nursery within my state has been giving talks about cps for students of varies ages and other groups. My orchid cohorts have been attending these talks because they also give talks to the same groups during these sessions.
He has been telling folks that very soon cps will overtake orchids as THE PLANTS for dedicated hobbyists to grow. What is so funny about this is that every one I talked to said it won't happen because cps are to difficult to grow. The talk of HL conditions, and pure water etc actually them worried. I gave a few cp pep talks before leaving there and showed pics (on my cell phone) of my neps growing together with my orchids.
Oh, and just for Thez, I know you prefer the blues but today I bought a flask of RED phal violaceas.
