Blc Empress Worsley

Blc Empress WorsleyBlc Empress WorsleyBlc Empress Worsley - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI have five plants on sale at EBay and I plan to have between five and ten on sale every week through October. I want to mention one of this weeks plants particularly.

It was potted in sphagnum over peanuts in a 4 1/2-inch clay pot. This plant has been removed from its pot and is being sold bare-root to save shipping cost and so you can see the quality of the roots. There are six pseudobulbs with two leads and stands eight inches above the pot.

I went back and forth on this decision. If these were high-end plants like Steve Christoffersen sells, I wouldn't have disturbed them. But for my plants, although they are nice, having the shipping cost more than the plant would hardly generate sales. The roots won't be harmed by a few days out of the pot. I really need to reduce my plant count over this growing season.
