Both are precious! It's amazing that the flowers on the Sigma can stand up like that! Cute little aliens walking along the leaves.

Aren't they adorable? Most Sigmatostalix have a bit of a sense of humor when viewed through a magnifying lens, I think.

I sent some pics to Andy to ID my putative Pleurothallis sp. http://cubits.org/orchids/thre...
At the orchid society meeting they thought it might be a Dendrochilum! No wonder I couldn't ID it! Here are some pics I sent him.

No Andy's special today, that's odd.

Cute Stelis! Those flowers are so teeny!

I think they may be working on the site. It's not showing any upcoming events either. I've been checking it daily, as they are listed as a vendor at the Spring Garden Show the end of this month, but he isn't showing it on his site. Confused

These mini's are adorable. There is certainly something fairy-like about them. I hope that mine bloom...

My new Sigmatostalix picturissima is here!!!! Love this cutie. It has lots more buds but I had to repot it from 100% sphagnum so we'll see.....
Good timing too since it will be 20 degrees tonight and I'm glad it's not in USPS's cold building somewhere.

Very cute! Such a pretty Sigmatostalix!

Oh those are so cute Kathy... love the look of Oberonia... enjoy them, are you on a shopping spree?

I just got 4 delivered as well... I got Papilionanthe pedunculata. Cym erythrostylum, Hwra. Lava Burst 'Puanani' AM/AOS, mounted, to replace the potted one I killed years ago, and the suppose to be Wils. Aloha Sparks 'Edna's Flame' AM/AOS, but they sent me a wrong plant, so I'm a bit disappointed right now:(

Now anxiously waiting for Leptotes bicolor, don't know why I never have one of this... and until the next order:)

I am always on a shopping spree!!! But you have me beat this week! BTW, I want your first two (although I have yet to bloom a terete) and I have Lava Burst and Leptotes bicolor.

I have yet to bloom my Papilionanthe teres, but I kept saying to myself it's not mature yet... lol... but I grow them for sentimental reasons Kathy... I collect as many as I can, all the species from my native country... plus if I grow them now, they will be mature when, perhaps one day I will move to a warmer place and at that point, they will be ready to bloom!!! See, all figured out:)

That's also why people make hybrids and intergenerics for you to grow, so you won't get too impatient waiting for your species to bloom...

So true. I have many flowers in my garden given to me from people no longer here that I will always keep.
