P. shantung "Pink panther" is very attractive Rob - I hadn't seen it before.

Here are two more that are flowering with me - my Whakari is a quite different colour !!

1) Pleione whakari - I'm very happy with this one !!  :D
2) Pleione speciosa - now P. pleionoïdes I guess.

my forrestii lasted about 4 days! :( didnt even get a chance to take a photo haha
like everyone elses mine was early this year, normaly forrestii blooms much later for me.

Rob, my forrestii are later flowering than normal and the first is still in flower now. Normally from 25th February onwards.

Rob "Pink Panther" is a good vigorous selection that multiplies well.

Luc another fine Whakari . These do vary greatly.

I'm glad you like my Shantung 'Pink Panther'. It was bred by a friend and given to me in its entirety because he didn't like the colouring, thought it was too girlie. I named it Pink Panther because I'd just seen a Peter Sellers movie. ;D ;D.
It makes quite a strong plant but I have to grow it for a few more years before I sell any more. There are only about 10 in circulation now.

Now that's rare, isn't it? And you can't twin scale a pleione!! (Thinking about all the hoo-haa inthe Galanthus pages about rare 'drops!!)

No Pleione, but a similar orchid (near Calyso). Very difficult to cultivate!
My first pics - but not the best for details.

Changnienia amoena

Hans, what an interesting orchid! Is it something like Calypso bulbosa as you mention "Calyso"?
Are these plants available for culture?

Very nice Hans, I have never heard of Changnienia. Looks somewhat Pleione like in shape. Can you tell us anymore about it - where does it come from?

More Pleiones opening each week here in Brum;
forrestii var. Viet-nam. A nice pale yellow, scented form obtained this year. (Koolplants.)
Eiger - not as nice as many already shown.
formosana "Cairngorm" - a reliable performer.
limprichtii.

Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.
