    Got the orchid addiction

    I've caught the orchid bug again now that I've got most every nep I want..so here's the trader joe's Paph opening up the second bud:


    (it's the lower one)

    And some of the new Phals that came through the mail today (LOVE the stuartiana leaves!!!)


    The stick-mount lobbii on the left don't look too hot, so I sprayed it down this late at night in the hopes that it's just dessication from its potting material (or lack thereof). You guys think it'll make it? It doesn't look rotten anywhere, just sort-of tired.

    I got a Phal amboinensis, lueddemanniana and mannii too...I wish I had either not bought orchids before the neps, or never bought all the neps
