Here's a white grass pink I grew this year.

If anyone has shots from this year I'd love to see them.

Hey Tom!

How's things on your side of the planet? Any more orchid shots I can drool over?

"Yours rocks!"
Well, your photographic skills trump my white Calopogon.

Hola- I have three + Calopogons growing, one came up on a small bog, and the others are in the yard, but even when they came up during the spring, they did not bloom this year. Too dry? Luis

Hey Kwoods! Yeah, I got lots 'o shots in the computer. Actually, I'm working hard on a website right now, so it'll be up and running in a couple months (I hope!)

Hey Luis! How are you? Sometimes plants just take a break for a year. I have a Calanthe that flowered like mad three years ago and grew like crazy. The next year it had NO blooms! This year it was full of blooms! Regarding the Calopogon, yes, give them plenty of water during their growth cycle and FULL SUN. Without full sun they cannot bloom properly.

Good to hear from you guys!

Tom
