Default Roots!

The way Hanna looks suggests that we'll get more rain here and have a little

Looks like Hurricane Hannah is heading for Florida, too. Hopefully not
your way.

A reproduction of the Nina (of Nina, Pinta, Sta Maria fame) was in Oakland

Just about everything is waterlogged! We've had a couple of dry days,
which is good. After all the rain, I need to get out there with a shot of
fungicide. Yesterday I freshened up the snail bait; seems to have worked.

We had a terrific flush of Catts over the last couple of months (our
plants are maturing!), but it's a little drab out there right now. More

Trichoglottis brachiata has buds coming up and down the trunk. Can't

mature in time for our first display next month.

All in all, things are good.

Doing some repotting since the roots are a-rooting now. Seeing how the
bud sheathes are coming. Found a speculative seeding that I bought
years ago ready to flower. Hope its as nice as the ones online. (Blc

The scale and mealies are abated for this nanosecond of time.

The Masd coccineas wish they were back in the Andes.

What's up with you all?
