It’s been a rough winter so far. Re-learning how to grow in a greenhouse has been a challenge but the days are getting longer now and things are starting to pick. Here are a few plants that have not missed a beat up.
Phalaenopsis equestris ‘B100’ I am not usually one for the round flat flower type, I normally prefer “wild” type but these guy is a cuties. The pollen fell into a gigantea 🙂
My plants are only about 8 years old so their leaves are not that large but this species can have leaves that live up to it’s name and be up to 90cm long. Two plants in bloom in the pinkhouse today.
We will not be at the SOOS( Toronto) orchid show this year, we were informed that they are full and have no more room for additional vendors. We will be reaching out to all of you that placed pre-orders to find suitable accommodations. However we shall be at the OSRBG (Burlington) orchid show on Feb ...
Nothing beats spend an afternoon working in the “pinkhouse” when it is freezing outside.
It may be winter but I still have my slice of paradise. -10c outside, +20c on the inside.
This cross between Epidendrum magnoliae x Brassavola nodosa is a highly scented miniature. The lip is highly influenced by nodosa but the size of the plant by the magnoliae. We will have these for sale at the winter shows.
Named because its patterns resemble Egyptian hieroglyphs. I think the petal on the left says “eat Tuna sushi it is yummy”.
Cross between belina and lueddemanniana. Strongly scented flat flower.

Flasking two new phal primary hybrid seed pods. In about 2 years they will be big enough to share. What a slow process! Phal lobbbi x deliciosa subsp. hookeriana Phal cornu-cervi var. sanguinea x javanica I think I enjoy wearing my gear a little too much.
Love the colour, wish it was not peloric.

This is a miniature version of the species, leaves are full grown at less than 2 inches and much rounder than the typical species. The normal leaf size for this species is 4-6 inches. For reference the pot is 3 inches wide
Lots to do now that the weather has started to turn. Insulating the door, closing the vents and adding much need lights(it gets bloody dark in the winter). For next weekend: -extra insulation on the vent -removing the shadecloth from the exterior and bringing it into the inside. Panorama shot
Random red barring of this make every flower unique.
