    I went to an auction at my aunt's church this weekend and an orchid grower donated some of his plants to the auction. It was a silent auction for the basket with the 2 Cattleya in it and on the botom of the sheet that you wrote your bid on it said that all of the centerpecies that were on the tables were included in the lot. I don't think anyone else saw that so I won all of these for $40. 12 assorted orchids plus 2 huge Cattleya. Jackpot!

    Wow! But you need to learn how to tell a story. For instance, you could have said, "Here's some of what's in bloom now. Excuse their appearance because I've been neglecting them."

    That was a deal. Nice plants too. Now go find your local OS and joint it too. I get alot of nice lants fron the raffles. Sometimes get lucky and they are already in flower. 2 bucks a ticket and a great way to enhance the collection. I have a HUGE LC love fantisy that I picked up in flower with 9 flowers for a 2 buck ticket. Also was lucky that I was the first ticket drawn. LOL Its in bloom now again for the 2nd time this year in fact. Looks to have another sheath forming aswell. Love the plant. Anyways great haul those are some very nice orchids. Are they all named or are some NoID? The red small flowered one looks like Lava burst. Mine just went out of bloom LOL.
