Arrow Haraella retrocalla (Project 8 - Spring 2009)

Hi all just got my computer back up and very pleased with the new project plant selection.
To make things a little more interesting I will be offering a prize for the first 2 people to get there's to bloom. (U.S residents only sorry)
You need to take a picture of the project plant when you first get it and post a picture here. Then again once it blooms. Thats all.
The prize will be 2 seedling Cattleya's
The first person will pick 2 of the 4 available the second person will get the remaining 2. Sound fair?
Good Luck!!
Here's the choices
Lc. Tristar Bouquet 'Hawaii'
Lc. Carolyn Reid 'Glowing Embers'
Lc. Little Oliver 'Tomoko'
Pot. Michael Edward Boersma 'Carmela'

If Sue (cb977) or Charile (cabnc) should win I have something else to offer.

I am guessing we can still post the pictures if we are outside of the US we just cant get the seedlings if we win? should we post our pics here for those of us outside US or use the other project thread.

What a fantastic thing to do Dave! Thanks so much for providing even more 'incentive' and fun! Too bad I'm not in the US - though with my track record of project plants (I don't think I've got *any* of them to flower yet!!) I'm not really bothered.

Can't the non americans people play for the glory? If an EU person wins then the prizes get bumped down to the 2nd and 3rd place persons. Just a thought.

Hey if one of us wins from the EU or Canada then does that mean we can buy two new orchids as a prize for ourselves? wonder if my husband would believe me in 12 years time if I said its flowered now I won the contest lets buy two more orchids

...and NO prizes for those who just might happen to receive their Haraella already in bud! Sneaky!

Say.....I like your way of thinking! So If I win I get to go buy myself 2 more chids! And if I don't win, I still go buy those orchids!
