Have Epidendrum orchids to trade

Posted by Bess_Shields 78006 (My Page) on

My greenhouse is THICK with Epidendrum orchids, and I would like to exchange some of them. Just contact me with whatever you have to exchange, and we'll take it from there.
I live outside San Antonio, so the weather can reach the teens in winter, and 110 degrees in mid-summer. My orchids live in a greenhouse, but a few larger pots-full grace our backyard during the summertime (under heavy oak shaded areas).
I have raised Epidendrums for over 30 years as a hobby, and have a vast mixture of ALL colors. Epi's are "rabbits" of the orchid world, and love to repopulate! I am especially fond of heirloom and antique roses, cosmos, and violets. Thanks!

Bess, I'm here in San Antonio too!! are you part of the orchid society here? I just went to my first meeting last month hoping that someone would just teach me to keep my phals alive. I'm a novice and boy did I have a blast. You should set up your email account on your members page so that members can email you. Click on the blue my page so you can see my trade list.
Would love to trade with you. I have a sunroom full of african violets:))My loving husband (he really is) is building a greenhouse for me so I can start my orchid collection.

I know this post is old but I wonder if you have any more epi's to trade? I tried to trade with another girl who never sent me the box full she promise while keeping all the things I sent her. I have lots to trade if you can still swap.
