Hawaiian Nobile type Dendrobiums...one of my passions.
I've just returned from a three week vacation in Kona Hawaii. It is such an unbelievably beautiful place. My vacation always includes trips to the garden centres at Home Depot, Lowes and Walmart. And of course the huge orchid selection at Costco. In garden centres you can get orchids for about $9.99-12.99 and lemons, avocados, palms and banana trees...and on and on. In Costco they have a huge selection of orchids. I'm getting excited again just thinking about it. As low as $6.99 per plant. My first trip to Hawaii we walked into the open lobby of our hotel and on the large round Koa table was a huge, low round bowl with about six Dendrobium orchid plants in full flower with pots hidden in the moss. They are a hawaiian orchid. So every time I see dendrobiums, I always think about doing that should I ever get a place there. A girl has to dream.
