March 2010 Newsletter
New orchid essences
have been emerging in the past few months. Vital Core and Celestial Siren were made in November, and in February and March we have had the making of three new single essences and a combination. Source of Life was made with a lovely specie from South America called Cochlioda beyrodtiana.
Within a few days we will have information on it up on the website. And one orchid, a specie from SE Asia Bulbophyllum gracillimum has produced the other two new essences.
Base Regulator was made with the bloom as it was nearly fully open, but the sexual parts of it were still concealed; we then used the same plant on the next blooming to make an essence with it about 18 hours later in the bloom cycle. Core Release is the name of the 2nd essence of this orchid, which is the orchid featuring on the cover of the new book.
More will be written in the next monthly newsletter, but I'm afraid this is all I have time for tonight, as a new seminar group arrive tomorrow, and it is rather late...!
