107th LTOE Essence
Luckily we now have in stock the small 3rd box for the LTOE kits, to house the essences which have had to sit outside the first two boxes. There are now 7 essences that would otherwise have to sit outside the kit boxes otherwise..!
Plenty to Explore
It will seem to some that we have now made a great many essences with orchids, and indeed we feel ourselves that we have what amounts to a fairly replete and even perhaps complete energetic toolkit now.
Yet my strengths as an orchid grower are limited to a relatively few genera. Out of the 800 orchid genera that exist, it is only a handful that I seem to be able to grow moderately well. My eldest brother, Reid Dennis, grows Cymbidiums in California, a genus I never had much luck with. And then there are thousands of people who are good with odontoglossums from South America, or with the vast Vanda family from SE Asia - to name but a few.
Working with our good colleague Dr. Brito-Babapulle over the past 10 years especially, we have developed what we believe to be an important and powerful kit of orchid essences. (Email us if you would like to have a PDF of Adrian's Pyramid arrangement of the LTOE - a fascinating and insightful way to consider the LTOE.)
But in the decades and centuries ahead, I expect there will always be new orchid essences that will emerge, just as each generation creates new poetry. And in the beauty of the family orchidaceae, there are vast areas yet to be explored.
