Holy crap! That's a lot! You should post pictures when the shipment arrives.

I hope I don't go too nuts in the nursery tomorrow.... I've been teased with all sorts of goodies.

I am always so excited when orchids are set to arrive. I just had four arrive last week. Happy mounting!

Misspelled the Bifrenaria...

It's Bifrenaria inodora.

Just in case you ever needed to find info on it, the proper spelling will get you the right hits.

Bought 4 more I'm not allowed to buy any more this fortnight now! They were all ones that I just liked the look of the flower. the seller was selling them as seedlings but the photos of the plants were all quite big and three of them he said had already flowered once so not really strictly seedlings. No ide if the names are actually registered or not, but I don't show phals anyway so they are just for my own enjoyment.

Phalaenopsis Sogo Super "Ao7420"
Phalaenopsis Yiching Fang King
Phalaenopsis Peacock
Phalaenopsis ; Dtps The Pride of Ben Yu " White lighting" Mericlone

Well the first part of the 'haul' arrived, all of the native Aussie ones and he even threw in an extra falcatus cluster for me so I'm pretty happy with that.

Just when I thought I wouldn't get any more orchids this fortnight I got an email through a freecycle group I am a member of from someone offering plant pots and a few scrappy orchids. Since I am always in need of extra pots I took her up on the offer and came home with heaps of great plastic and concrete pots, three very sad looking cymbidiums, which already look much better after being repotted and she had this absolutely enormous cluster of something growing under her tree and she gave me a huge chunk of it. Not entirely sure what it is, she called it a 'cooks orchid' whatever that is but said it had strings of yellowy flowers on it, looks like a coelogyne of some sort to me but time will tell... She also gave me a big chunk of white flowering epiphyllum cactus and a cutting of the night flowering epiphyllum.

Talk about making my day!!

Oh and I will post some photos a bit later I promise
