Epidendrum Miura Valley keeps on opening, the blooms on the non-resupinate secundum type reedstem Epi don't complain too much. Smiling

Oh my goodness, where did the month go?
Well thanks Ursula, I see we are off to another great start. I love that Rojo! It was like the third or fourth orchid I purchased back in 1975! I lost it in the mid 80's due to scale which I could not beat back then. The
That pink reed stem Epi. Is a show stopper!!

I don't believe I have ever seen a reedstem epi, it is a showstopper for sure.

I used to have several varieties of reed-stem Epidendrums, but think I only have the radicans now. They are just starting to bloom.

I know these flowers are not open yet but I just couldn't resist. I didn;t even know this plant was in spike, its so small, true mini, the plaque is only 2" x 3". Cirrhopetalum (bulbophyllum) tiawanense

Those ARE teeny ones Gina.. but cute even though I needed the magnifying glass!
On the other end of the spectrum I have this Rlc. Pamela Finney with 5 massive fragrant blooms on 2 spikes.
This one opened a couple of weeks ago when I was out of town, but missed getting her picture taken.

Oh how I wish I was team captain. I'd made a practice of including all of my clerks in ribbon judging. We have a really good time!
I love the display, very nice color flow!

Jumellea comorensis flowers year around, throwing some cinnamon-scented blooms out here and there with some major blooming cycles. Right now it is budding on all sides of this somewhat wild looking clump.
