Hello
I have seen an advert on Ebay.de, selling a plant called pleione dongshanense. Picture of bulb shows small bulb but flowering size. Would it be a synonym for pleione hookeriana?
Can anybody help?
Regards Erling

Not a name I've ever heard of and probably made up to attract business. Bulb looks wrong shape for Pleione hookeriana that I've had in the past. At a guess if it is a species I'd say small limprichtii or pleionoides but that is just a guess.

You might be right, but it certainly attracted attention - 30. Pretty much to pay for Pln limprictii or plenioides.

Hello!

I hope you're all alright and that you have your orchids in a safe place.  I heard you have a really bad weather these days in the UK. Lots of wind and rain. I hope your basements and garages didn't get flooded and all the Pleione destroyed since this is a place we like to keep our children over winter ;)  :S Even here it is very windy...
So i hope you are OK.... And Merry Christmas to everyone  :P ;D

Regards

I'm wondering a little about hte differences between Thai and Indian praecox. It seems like the Thai clones doesn't trhrive as well as the Indian clomes. Maybe they find that it is too cold and shold go with maculata. Anyone have anu observatios?

wharfedale 'pine warbler'

I find this the best winter flowering hybrid.
Grows easily and quickly.
I keep the pan in an unheated greenhouse until the buds are visible then into the house for flowering.
The leaves then grow very slowly and I don't water until I start to water the spring flowering clones,

Love your wharfdale pine warbler David.  It is one of my favourites, if only the flowers had longer stems.  Admire your patience in arranging them so that all the flowers hang over the edge of the pot.  My own pot is a total mess due to the number of bulbs with 2/3 flower spikes and double flowers per spike, but I suppose that I shouldn't moan as this means 2 or 3 new bulbs next year

Steve,
agreed about the stems on wharfedale - they are a problem.
I don't have any double flowering stems as I did not repot the bulbs last autumn so they
were rather crowded this last summer.
This meant smaller bulbs overall although the rate of increase is still good.
