    I don’t Mark, I think you will have to go orchid hunting next summer and see if you can locate some and get seed.

    I bought one, Cambria ‘Nelly Isler’ it says on the label, (but who’d ever belive a label at the best of times) it was the last one left. It was in bud so just opening its flowers now. Whatever about the flowers I’m more interested in whether the plant will thrive over time or not. I’ll just have to be patient and wait and see…

    Hi Una,
    Not usual alright to have a new shoot so late. I’d keep watering until the old stems drop leaves as usual and then let to go dormant the new shoot will probably stop growing, but I think if you don’t let it rest the entire plant will suffer

    Hi Susan,
    Do you mean the Orchid Fair April 2018 which was held in the Teak house?
    I looked back at the winners of prizes for the show and there is no Masdevallia in the prizes so it might take a little longer to find the owner. I’ll send a few emails and see if I can find the owner

    Hi David,

    The best place to buy unusual orchids is at the Orchid Fair, check out our calendar of events for dates and times.

    I recently had a query about buying cymbidiums and referred the person to online shopping it is where most members get there rarities these days.

    It is very hard to source anything other than the usual here in Ireland.

    You are correct in relation to cymbidiums Shane and lack of availability.

    As for the Orchid Fair, that all depends on Brexit. And we all know what a mess that is at the moment.

    We will just have to wait and see what happens because if the UK leave without a deal then CITES will be enforced for the import and export of all plants. Each species or hybrid would need a CITES permit and these are very expensive and take time to be supplied.
    We will know more by the 29th March deadline

    No Shane
    I’m afraid it won’t have its natural pollinator
