Another Box of Botanical Goodness from Carlos

Nothing brightens a day like a box of orchids, and one arrived yesterday. I had sent Carlos a box with 4 plants last week and this was the most generous reply. There were 8 plants, all species that I didn't have.

All 8 were in a small Priority Mail box, 8x5x2, packed in Spanish moss. It worked extremely well for the small plants, much better than if they had been individually wrapped.

Today's task is to get them cataloged and mounted or potted. Orchids are not fragile but it is best to get them in a growing environment right away.


  1. What species did you receive? They look very interesting. What fun!

  2. You're right, it has been fun. The list will be in tomorrow's post.
