My only alternative would be to take a 2 day ferry trip to mainland Spain and then drive to wherever I could buy a wanted orchid! This makes them rather expensive!!
We all need a reality check from time to time don't we

Have you considered trying flasks or plants with a rest period?
If people shove their Catasetum in boxes during winter, I assume they could survive the trip.

Good ideas but I long ago came to peace with the Phal only concept.
Just keep posting pics and Qs about all sorts of orchids so I can learn and admire from afar! Please!

I feel so identify with this comment!!!!

And also the fact that here in the forum we can enjoy many varieties that I'll never going to get. I spend lot of time online-dreaming with orchids I cannot buy or get. 😋

great phals there Fuerte, yours have a lot of flowers on them I have to say.

I will show off one last pic of my Tetraspis Red x self and then leave it. I haven't been able to detect a smell but I am starting to like the flower

Ha! Not gonna lie, I'm a bit jealous. Most species are barely starting to feel like it's time to do something

Mr. Fakename if you have not got one yet you need to get a phalaenopsis purple martin.
It flowers end of the year into November so much later than its parent the violacea, is one of my most reliable phalaenopsis and it kind of feels a bit like a species? atleast a species hybrid but it has the vigor that comes with a multihybrid.

I am in awe of that white multiphal from SADE. I know the white flowers are the least interesting but having that many is impressive and the white flowers in my experience last longer so what they lack in color they make up for in longevity.

Purple Martin is a nice primary hybrid, but I haven't finished my Phal species collection yet. Priorities!

I don't tend to have an overall Phal season. I have plants that bloom the same time every year, but I don't have a time of year when I ever have a large quantity in bloom at once. I've always got a phal or two or three in bloom, but never more than a few.

One of my favorites is Sogo Yukidian 'V3', and the spike is so big that it takes forever from the time the spike emerges from the time the first blooms open. Then when it's done blooming, it takes two or three months off, and then spikes again, which means it blooms at a different time every time. It has just started its latest spike, which means the flowers will probably start opening in the fall. The flowers last easily for three months, then it takes a couple months off, and spikes again, so next time it may be december before it blooms again. You just never can tell with that one. It does whatever it wants.
