Here are some photos of a Phaius "Nun's Orchid" just set in the livingroom from the greenhouse. A Calanthe x 'Kozu Spice' and a Bletilla planted in the garden. Oh, I could not resist posting a photo of Nepenthes that DH bought yesterday.
Wow, your Kozu Spice is a very different color palette from mine. I was hoping for pinks but got yellow and a reddish-brown, still very nice but you know you get that catalog shot fixed in your head.... Maybe we should make a trade about five years from now, after they bulk up in the garden.
I like the nepenthes. It looks like one I got at Home Depot last fall with my buy one get one free houseplant coupon.

Plant trade is always good. Most of what I have are pretty common plants, but that is going to change. I say drive fast, take chances. Before I was afraid of spending too much on a specimen plant thinking I might kill it.
That's one of the reasons I like trading, it gives me insurance against losing something in my own garden. If a plant dies, I can always go get another start, that is, as long as I remember who/where I spread it out to.
Sounds good to me Karen. I also collect rocks and believe me I know where every one came from. I always dread when someone comes to our house with kids, they always go right to a stack of rocks. Arrrrgggg. Our best man comes to visit a couple times a year and rearranges some stones. Always a test. Love 'em though, kids and mischievious friends.
And I love yellow with reddish brown in the garden. Blends nicely with the tropical fare. Our garden shed is being transformed into a cantina. And the garden equipment will be moved to a more discret local.
im my view phaius tankervilliae is the simplest of all orchid plants to grow easily.It grows multiply.
you are having good orchid plants,it make your room so awesome.
It entertains you so much.
are orchid plants are expensive and finicky to plant them?
