    I wonder how Herman would manage that since the entire operation was moved from its location in Illinois to Wisconsin? I would not think it likely that Herman moved up with it. Also, I know his daughter and son-in-law were to have moved out to California. I rather expected Herman to move out there with them.

    As far as quality remaining the same, I hope so though only time will tell. I did notice on their website that prices had increased quite a bit.

    I'll post some photos when I get time later, but I ended up with younger seedlings of Dendrobium discolor and Dendrobium spectabile...seems pretty straightforward for caring for em, but any tips?

    Here are the plants me and my girlfriend came home with! The two dendrobium are mien and she got the phals. My main quesiton is, can the dendrobiums be put very close to the grow lights? The seller said he thought they'd do fine under lights as logn as they were above a water tray to give them adequate humidity!

    Oh dude! You do go for the bigguns don't you? Those dens are both going to be be HUGE plants. I envy you having that kind of space. Due to my space restrictions I have never tried either one (though if I had the space I would grab a D. spectabile in a hot second). But based on folks I have known who grew spectabile, over the summer it can be put outside where it will receive very bright indirect light.

    So besides the Doritanopsis, what phal did you woman get?

    D. spectabile, very nice choice! I used the bloom as inspiration for one of my senior seminar pieces.
