A new member here 🙂 Now that the Christmas is over, I thought I will check if anyone got any new orchid as a present, and perhaps, due to lack of space or other reasons, would like to sell or give away an old one.
The society usually has plants available for members at the monthly meeting raffles.
However, I have the following plants which you are welcome to have for free😀.
Please let me know which, if any, interest you and I shall bring them to the Feb meeting.I may also have some others to give you from divisions in the spring!
Coelogyne cristata (mature, flowering sized)
Masdevallia ignea (small, plant about 2 years to flowering)
Dendrobium infundibulum (rooted keiki, about 3 years to flowering)
Dendrobium loddigesii (rooted keiki, about 2 years to flowering)
Thank you very much. I did a quick research on these four orchids. All are cool growers. I have one masdevallia and one dendrobium nobile Aurora. Both reblooming every year so I guess they like the conditions. If these two love it then Coelogyne should be fine too. I cannot resist and would like to adapt all four. How can we arrange the collection of it or can you keep it for me till the February meeting?
I will bring the plants to the February meeting for you in a shopping bag. Yes, they are all cool and fairly easy growers (the Masdevallia is a bit tricky!). If for some reason you cannot get to the Feb meeting just leave a message on this thread and I will keep them for the next meeting. See you February!
Thank you so much Shane. I will remind you a day before. Also, I just want to know, how does the raffle works ? I have one still small but healthy and well rooted keiki that I would like to give away for free. It’s from my Dendrobium Nobile Aurora plant. Or I can just bring it and who ever wants, can take it right ?
I’m brand new to all this. Any freebies that are easy enough for an absolute beginner would be welcomed! I have one large Phal., one mini one and a scented one, a very tiny cattleya and a pungent coelogyne. Hope to be able to make it to the February meeting.
