West, You may notice how quiet it is here now.
I might mention just in case you haven't read any of the threads discussing
the ISP's pulling the plugs on alt.binaries groups, most everyone meets at
rec.gardens.orchids where we chat & post links to photos.
Cheers Wendy

Lady of the evening is a discriptive name for Brassavola nodosa due to the fragrance it emites at night. Most of the other Brassavolas do too but they're no where near as common as nodosa. It easiest to grow mounted on something like bark or tree fern because it's very easy to rot off by overwatering in a pot and because the flowers are displayed better when held up a bit due to their floppy nature. Good gardening.
