10. is Dendrobium Luz del Dia 'Kiilani'
12. Paph Pedro's Moon opened just for Kathy today!! Smiling
13. Would you believe the Rumrillara Sugar Baby started blooming in September. But it is on its last leg now.
15.Memoria Docter Benjamin Byrd (Lc. Dinard x C. Bonanza) is blooming out of season. The blooms face unfortunately the wrong direction and can't be straightened out anymore. Hence the back view...
16 Cirrhopetalum putidum
18. Ceratostylis philippinensis

It is 20 feet x a smidgeon less than 12 feet, just they way the glass-panels measure up, as it was built out a bit over the garage.
