Hi corinac - I'm just giving you a hard time, so I am glad you weren't offended. The "there are no blue orchids" is an old trope in orchid growing. In Minnesota we have the second largest orchid society in the States and when I interact with those folks people say it often. So, I love bringing up the sun orchids, partly because they are super cool, but also to point out that most folks who grow orchids only really know a small subset, and typically not the terrestrial species. I'm just having a bit of fun with folks when I do that. Thanks for replying in good humor!

Apoplast, no way that I would ever be offended by a comment like that and I didn't feel that you were trying to give me hard time at all : ) Orchids are a subject so large that I don't think anyone will get to know everything about them.
