30 March 2010


i got home from work to my office filled with the stench of coconut: the maxillaria tenuifolia is blooming! i don't much like coconut, but the smell is really delicious --- actually if your nose is pointed the right way or whatever, it smells like crayons

and one of my epidendrums is blooming, too (god knows what specie, what with over 1100 from which to choose) --- it don't smell

furthermore, i have another crassula ovata in the house, courtesy of robert, for whose space it had outgrown --- it is the offspring of one that i had for over 30 years, but that was too big to bring over here when i moved and so  is now being enjoyed by mr. hasty
