|Richard, thanks for posting! Very pretty!|
The Thunia alba is particularly interesting, I don't think I ever remember anyone posting pictures of this one, one only reads about it.

|I agree that one is amazing and I have never even heard of it.|

|The May issue of "Orchids" has a very nice article about Thunia. ( I left my magazine at Kay yesterday...) See the Orchids of the month section, I think.|

|I hope someday my tiny Paraphalaenopsis serpentilingua blooms. It is now growing some roots after sitting like a lump this winter. I also really like the Bulbo sumatranum!!|
