Ruby slippers for the Orchid Olympics. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing As I remember Dorothy had no trouble gallivanting around on the yellow brick road in those slippers, gathering flowers. Just stay away from the poppies, Jim. Orchids only.

I'm back with nine new babies but too tired to post more now; perhaps tomorrow. My shoes are soaking in a bucket of water.

I had picked up this Dialaelia Mizoguchi 'Princess Kiko' in spike at the Silva Open house in January. This one came from James Rose/Cal-Orchids who is always a guest vendor there.
2 spikes and I didn't blast them.
Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/bbbc5a

A first bloom on Laelia Santa Barbara Sunset 'Showtime' HCC/AOS. I had picked up a tiny plant from Cal-Orchids some years ago and it is now finally ready to bloom.
Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/636915

And another one bought in bud at Silva's Open House this year - Dendrochilum bicallosum. Unfortunately this one has a very unpleasant odor. Thumbs down
Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/3423dd Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/a53710

An old repeat bloomer - Ascofinetia Lionstar
Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/42f0cc Thumb of 2012-02-11/Ursula/12b7a9

And the Asctm "not miniatum". Bought last March at the SEPOS as definitely miniatum ( the lip is curved upwards = not miniatum)- but most likely, perhaps Whistling ampullaceum var aurantiacum. It is a nice plant though and I love the blooms. The roots are almost 3 feet long.

I love them all. Stinky or not, the Dendrochilum is a winner. This is coming from someone who just bought two Bulbos. I also very much like the Laelia Santa Barbara Sunset 'Showtime' HCC/AOS. Great color.

One of the NOID Catts from Apopka has opened up a bit more. For $5, what the heck.
Thumb of 2012-02-11/hawkarica/f12433

Bulbophyllum madibulare is looking better as well.

Here is an update on Scl. Mem. Doug Lace 'Rosminah'.
Thumb of 2012-02-11/hawkarica/e0ed14

And another look at Potinara Elaine Taylor 'Krull Smith' FCC/AOS from my recent Apopka trip.

Thanks!
Jim, beautiful show! I don't think my 'Rosminah' is going to bloom so soon, if at all this year. It is now again in the growth stage.
About the Bulbo, which I really like very much. Could that be Bulbo mandibulare?
The Potinara is gorgeous.

I was waiting for my Ascocentrum christensonianum to open a bit more -

And there is Oerstedella centradenia
Thumb of 2012-02-13/Ursula/af2566 Thumb of 2012-02-13/Ursula/98994d

Cattleya walkeriana v. alba is blooming ( on this plant) from new leads without pseudobulb or leafy growth. Strange! The bloom is very thick and has trouble totally straightening out. The scent is heavenly.
Thumb of 2012-02-13/Ursula/816057 Thumb of 2012-02-13/Ursula/f26530

My Enc. polybulbon is growing very well and will have the (horizontally placed) slab fully covered probably soon. It is starting to bloom, but not very well, it probably needs more straight sun.

Here is the plant in Febr 2010, as I had pinned it down on Epiweb and showing a season's growth.
