Greenhouse Open House Yesterday

Rhyncholaelia digbyana - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThe new greenhouse at Napa Valley OrchidsMy open house was a big success. Quite a few came and I spent a nice 4 hours talking about orchids. Two even brought me gifts, one a blooming-sized Rhyncholaelia digbyana, the other a Raymond Burr cross.

Mine wasn't the only open house here in Napa. Debra Atwood at Napa Valley Orchids was showing off her new greenhouse. At the end of the day I went over to see it and I was quite impressed. She has more Angraecums and other monopodials such as Seideria, Neofenetia, Phalaenopsis, Tuberolabiums, Trichoglottis, Aerides and other vandaceous species. All four walls are covered in small mounts including many species you don't see offered much. And all of her plants seem to be loving their new home.
