Orchid Society Meeting

I've joined my local circle of the Dutch Orchid Society. Once a month there are meetings with talks, plant discussions and a raffle. It is a really good way to get some good information from experienced growers and to see what other people are growing. I am by far the youngest member so they seemed quite enthusiastic about some fresh blood. I mentioned I had a vivarium and one member was nice enough to give me a couple of seedlings that might thrive there.

And this is Aerengis Brachycarpa. Both are still young seedlings so it will take a couple of years before they might flower. According to the person who grew these from seeds these have a chance in the low light levels of the vivarium.

I think this is a Oncidium 'Twinkle' which I won in the raffles. It wasn't the Cattleya I had my eye on but nevertheless it makes a nice houseplant to cheer up the living room during this grey January.
