and Stelis cypripedioides, this one hasn't done anything lately, so I am surprised to see some new growth and a couple of 'Fuzzy Toilet bowls" Smiling

Happy Easter and April's Fools day!
Ursula your little crafty creations crack me up...those two are an adorable pair!
Your Trichopilia suavis x self is gorgeous...I got one for my sister and I think it
went the way of the Dodo....I've not seen one blooming in real life, someday maybe.
I've got some new photos this morning.

I'm still trying to find my way with this family of plants, but am happy to get a few
buds on this Den. rhodostictum X Aussie Chip. This was a free plant from my orchid
club annual renewal last year and it had a massive number of blooms on it. I think these
flowers might be an acquired taste, I find them quite bashful.




This is a new plant Ctna. Jamaica Joy X Ctna. Michael Davis
it's blooming for the first time.

Happy Easter!
I lost my Trichopilia suavis. I think I need to try that one again.

That Ctna. is an interesting one. Such a tall spike on that small plant.

Yes Carol, it's in a REALLY tiny pot (you can use the dog hair on the black felt for size comparison Whistling ) I'm thinking about mounting it so the flowers can hang down .

Oh, such lovelies here everyone. Happy Easter and I am especially pleased to be done with my volunteer duties at the sailing club and back to tending my garden and my orchids. (they got fed for the first time in weeks today)

Patty gave me this cork mount with two plants on it, one on each side. The Yellow Bird is blooming and has two more spikes coming along, and in the background you can see the very tall spike from the Enc. alata on the other side of the cork. They seem to like it at my house, thankfully.

Look Jim!
That Den Firewings you gave me last summer has finally decided to bloom for me. Just one spike with 7 buds.. but I'm thrilled to have finally found a spot that it likes.

I am rushing outside to check on mine, what a lovely flower. Love the markings on it.

. . . No sign of spikes yet, but there's lots of lush, healthy new growth. I have hopes.

So Lindsey, how much light are you giving your Fire Wings plant?

I put it out with my Catts and the Hawaiian type NOID Dens and it promptly got fried.

C. Olivia blooming today. This one opens (almost) on the same day every year.
And some reruns that I can't get enough of.
