|Since it is the middle of the month - perhaps a second thread is in order.|

|The plant I bought a couple of years ago as Coelogyne pandurata (but is probably Coel. Burfordiense) is in the process of opening 6 spikes, the show started yesterday!|

|I need to lift the plant to the table and get a better angle on this, but it isn't moved that easily. I had carried it out on the deck in May and it is happy in that spot.|

|And a small flowering on my Neofinetia falcata, Amami form - |
It had lost the whole center of the plant last Summer, but 2 outside fans stabilized and they are growing and even flowering this Spring.

|Amazing show. That Coel. Burfordiense is fabulous!|

And yes, the Coelogyne is FUN!! I am glad it made it nicely through the indoor season, since I just stuck it into one corner of the greenhouse with plants dangling over it and simply flooded all of them daily!

|Very nice Ursula, the Podangis dactyloceras is especially charming with its long tailed crystalline blooms. |
I got my first Neofinetia falcata last week ('Benisuzme'), I will see how that goes.

|Ursula, that Coelogyne is simply supurb!|

|Did you catch any? What do they eat? Just back from Aida!!|

|Not yet! I used a nut mixture, have to see if that works. But the Kitty was chewing something for quite a while. I wonder if she got a Chipmunk!|

|Can't remember if I posted this Phal. before It spent a couple months at work. Brought it home yesterday to give it some real sunlight. It has really cute small flowers and was a favorite of the patients and staff at work. I was almost afraid someone would take it home. |
