It's time for a new thread...
Psygmorchis pusilla (Oncidium) is a frequent bloomer, the pretty plant is about the size of the palm of my hand.

Here is another attempt to get decent pictures of the teensy Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky'. Aperture bracketing amongst other settings and a tripod! Bloom size is about 2 to 2.5 mm.

The color is somewhere in-between

Angraecum distichum is in bloom again. It does that every so often throughout the year.
Pretty little sparkling blooms

Ivy, most of the Ang distichum plants are sold as very tiny pieces, 2 - 3 inches long ( which is how this one started out). I would just make sure the pieces are shiny and clean and have some decent roots.

I would go with shermantp. He consistently sends me fine orchids.
I got some nice things from Incredible Orchids too, but have used shermantp more.

Cirrhopetalum putidum skipped blooming this Summer, I see now a couple of blooms and more buds. The plant grew around the mount.

Dendrobium rigidum ( Dockrillia rigida) shows a few blooms. This one is supposed to be fragrant, have to take a sniff tomorrow.Thumb of 2010-11-05/Ursula/9b60b4 Thumb of 2010-11-05/Ursula/b79b25 Thumb of 2010-11-05/Ursula/fae57c
