|Nice Wrapping work!|
I was really impressed with the way the order was wrapped, with each plant separately wrapped in paper, with more delicate plants also getting a layer of polyester wool under the paper. Only one of the plants was sent bare root (other than those which were mounted, obviously), which I quite like - saves potting up, and I think the plants might get less stressed; the potting mix was held in place with newspaper and packing tape.

|Aerangis modesta |
I accidentally ordered one from each of the two suppliers. Oh well :)
A rather lovely plant name, somehow.
(I forgot to photograph this one;
This was the only plant that wasn't mounted or in a pot,
and looks like it was a recent cutting off a larger plant.
A very cute, minute little orchid; you almost need a magnifying glass to see it!
The leaves have a very cool sculptured texture.
|Tetramicra canaliculata |
Hard to forget the name of this one; reminds me of a seaweed whose specific epithet
was quite amusing in undergrad (Pelvetia canaliculata [can-I-lick-you-later...]
- hey, we're all young once).
As it was quite small, it was thrown in as a "freebie" - many thanks!
|Tolumnia Jairak Rainbow|
I don't remember ordering this - will find out how it ended up in this order. :)
Edit: Tinus confirmed this was indeed a bonus - yay! Thanks :D
