Hello all!
Default Hello all!

I used to have an account here about 20 years ago but lost trace of my logins so here I am with a new account.
Back then I had about 100 orchids but had a huge mealy bug attack and lost most of my orchids. I was left with two or three orchids and did not want to buy any other.
about 3 years ago, I decided to go back buying some but only a few and to concentrate on Cattleyas and Laelias and some relatives . I now also try (very slowly, only 3 for now) Dendrobiums.
I have now about 30 orchids, (I managed to buy again some of my lost ones save for a Cattleya chocolate drop Kodama that is very difficult to find now in Europe)
I live now by the sea in Brittany , France.

Welcome back!

What part of Brittany? Pre-pandemic, my wife and I spent a week based in Saint-Malo, making day-trips to nearby attractions.
