Pretty picture: Degarmoara Flying High 'Stars and Bars'

Yet another orchid, ho-hum.

No, I kid the orchid -- I actually like this one a lot. I think the less they look like Phalaenopsis, the more interested I am, and this one has a different color palette and a different petal shape, so it's . . . well, you know. Pretty different.

Not that there's anything wrong with Phalaenopsis; I'm just kind of bored with them. We've gotten in some very nice ones, but they're repeating themselves now. Show me a new color every once in a while, guys, huh?

Degarmoara is a Brs x Milt x Odm cross, which means it has genes from Brassia, Miltonia, and Odontoglossum. I think this is the only one I've seen, though, so I don't know if there's anything particularly cool about that particular combination.

I think this one looks like a large bug. I know, I don't deserve to own one. That's my fate, and I accept it.
