Hi Don,
If you are asking about the green house... I got a little lazy and there were some other minor setbacks. I have been busy working on other parts of the house. I am currently replacing some rain gutters all around the house and redoing some of the copper pipping on the back side of the house. I'll resume when these are complete.

But if you're asking for spathe updates, I have my red affinis flowering under water. Although it is not "emerged".

See the dark spiral limb?


Here is the affinis family

You need to get your priorities straight, Xue. Plants > Choirs.

Those are some beautiful affinis. Malaya has taken most of mine down so beware of that stuff

Malaya has done horrible for some things I have but the red affinis I got from Xue lives it, I put a root medic cap below the plant and it now has a out a dozen leaves all about 6-8" long. The Malaya has been in my tank almost a year now so that may be why it isn't having the same effect that new stuff does.

Right on, Xue!! That affinis patch is perfection! I was referring to your plants, but was hoping you would provide a "greenhouse" update too! I would agree that your priorities are out of order...I mean, "gutters"??? "Copper Piping"??? "Lazy"?????!!!!!

Very nice spathe...pretty remarkable that you were able to get it to flower underwater!

Everything looks wonderful, as I suspected......too much to ask for a fts sometime soon?

There are a few members who had flowered their crypts under water. C nurii, usteriana, and usteriana x walkeri seems to flower easily submerged.

I am keeping an eye out on my c keei patch also. A lot of the plants are showing prominent cathaphyls. This is usually a sign when crypts are attempting to flower

Looks like you'll really be needing that greenhouse sooner or later! Got any sprays from those Phals yet?

Yeah I know I have been lagging it as far as the green house is concerned. I am not pulling your leg and i need to keep my handy man hat on for at least two more weeks. Rain gutters are almost done. With the help of a good friend, we already installed the back and the sides of the house to get a good handle before we screw up the front. Looks almost professionally installed considering the fact that we have never done much home improvement...check it out

You can almost see my emersed setup in the other photo

Almost forgot about this guy. The piptospatha keiki is showing signs of growth but it appears to be slow growing considering how fast the mother plant is growing

Len,

When are you placing your order for the orchids? I might be interested in a few sp.

Did you get an import license?

This is for Steve.
