My Dendrobium batanense is blooming again this Summer and this is the best flowering yet on this plant. Tiny, very fragrant blooms are seemingly sprouting on the spikes. This Dendrobium has interesting growth and even looks great when not in bloom.

L.tenebrosa X Blc Chinese Bronce 'Marco Polo' always blooms in tight pairs and it is hard to get a good picture of it. So, I cut a slit in a piece of paper and did the best I could. I really like the colors.

I just had to take another pic of the yellow Spathoglottis picatta. It is in its peak and the sun was just right.

Love those Spathoglottis...that yellow is so bright! And the colour of that tenebrosa hybrid is so different.

Great macro shot of that Dendrobium Ursula!

I have a new first-time blooming phrag...it's Robert palm X Rosalie Dixler. It has issues with its shape..I am hoping the next flower will be better.

Kathy: What is the orchid in your very first post? It sure is pretty.

Ursula: Wow, I'm loving that Dendrobium batanense ... the blooms are great but I agree, the plant alone is awesome! I really love the growth habit of that one.

Jim: That L. tenebrosa x is a really pretty Orchid, really nice color combination on that bloom!

Todd: Oh my goodness ... that Phrag. is gorgeous! I don't really know orchids so I don't have a clue what the shape on that one is supposed to look like, but it looks pretty perfect to my old eyes ... a really beautiful bloom!

I have one orchid blooming right now ... Yay! This is Laelia purpurata x BL Richard Mueller:
