Orchid Society Holiday Party

The orchid society party went well. That was last Sunday. Nice theme, Hawaii, wish we could all be there! Great food as always! Somehow, I think gardeners know how to cook and eat! It was a good time, but I was a bit bummed out from the night before, my own holiday party where hardly anyone showed up. I didn't feel like being very social. I did however, win a door prize. A Cycd. Jumbo Puff 'Jumbo Orchids' SM/TOGA! I was told mine was blooming the female flowers and luckily, someone brought in one in bloom with male flowers so I had a short lesson on how to tel l the difference! As usual, the female flowers aren't quite as showy as the males and they have bigger (what I call) "shields" (the lip). Hope I don't kill this unique orchid! Looks like it will like my semi-hydroponic (SH) media though!
