We went to the Smith College Greenhouse (or the Lyman Conservatory) today. http://www.smith.edu/garden/Conservatory/conservatory.html
Here are the orchid pics I took there.

Most are in the Den. kingianum group, with a huge Maxillaria in the bottom row and the last pic is Vanda tricolor.

I'll look at the list on the site for the names of the kingianums, Carol. I have Den. kingianum var. silcockii and another hybrid I got at J & L that look like some of these.

That looks like a great place Kathy. I'm sitting here having a cup of coffee, watching it snow yet again. Your tour of the greenhouse is certainly uplifting.

I did the stupid moving in spike with my kingianum and lots of buds blasted. Aaargh! Todd is a great kingianum grower, but even he would swoon over the 24"+ pots in full bloom all over the greenhouse!
