That's lovely, Sarmienta. :) I too love the odontoglossums, not sure whether I'll ever get used to the name changes.
I'm amazed that your O. pulchellum is in flower already. Mine are yet to show spikes. But they flowered like crazy last year, maybe they are taking a rest. I grow them very cool, together with the Dendrobium infundibulum I showed on the previous page.

Thanks Maren............ ;D i think were all excellent growers  ;)
Besides garden orchids i also keep busy with (sub) tropical species.
Some of them are not really easy form me,but a challenge worth.Tropical miniatures i keep i a terrarium,along with some small poison frogs.

Sarmienta,
nice plants. I like the terrarium.
This is another sophronitis -coccinea, a recent purchase and first flower.
The plant is small - no more than 3-4 inches high.
The plant was bought as a 4n( tetraploid) form.
The flower should be bigger for a 4n form but this may be because the plant is not yet fully established.
The wild species is difficult to grow as it likes bright light, cool temps and high humidity, not an easy combination.
The Japanese took it and line bred it as well as converting it to 4n status. The resulting plants have much larger flowers and are supposed to be easier and more vigorous growers,
Regards,
David

Well just had a great weekend at my local orchid show! Managed to get my third AOS award! Very excited to get an HCC on my bulbophyllum refractum. Now bulbophyllum refractum 'Phillip and Alistair' HCC/AOS. Named after my 2cats...

David,
your Sophronitis coccinea is adorable, the quality of the flower is outstanding.

I'm a bit of a sophronitis nut, having seen whole hillsides covered with them in the Brazilian Organ Mountains, flowering in the canopies of trees. However, the individual flowers were much smaller than yours, of course, you can't beat a 4N for size. :) :) :)

How about this for a weird and wonderful cymbidium?
It's called Vogel's Magic, more like the leopard's spots.

A small Paphiopedilum I recently bought is flowering for the first time with a flower just 6 cm across.
