Cranberry Glades in the Monongahalea National Forest of Elkins, WV

This past Saturday I got up bright and early (well maybe not so bright!) at 3:30am! I had to be in Morgantown, WV by 6am so the five of us from the orchid society could carpool together to the Cranberry Glades to view some wild orchids up close and personal! It was worth having to wake up when I usually wanted to go to bed instead as we saw TONS of orchids! 

Platanthera grandiflora found on the side of the road!

Platanthera grandiflora alba, the only one in the whole forest!

Calapogon tuberosus growing in the bog.

There are more pictures that can be seen on the OSWP's Facebook page. Can't wait to go on another hike to find more orchids! It's quite exciting!

Labels Labels Labels!!!

Well darn it, I have not been documenting things as well as I should be! My first starts of peach Bhut Jolokias and Jay's Peach Ghost Scorpions got mixed up and I was hoping I had documented them earlier, but it looks like I did not. :\ I only labeled two. Luckily, there are only four pots to figure out, one with a double plant so that one will be easy. It doesn't pay to be cheap on labeling!!! Get those labels in!!!
