    Spiranthes romanzoffiana

    Ha, ha! I know how you feel. I'm always finding "things" in my photos and videos after the fact - yes, my closeup vision is getting worse by the minute. Neat orchid, but an even neater spider. It always amazes me how an animal can be so narrowly adapted - I'm assuming it can only effectively...

    Bletilla ochracea

    Nice surprise!

    Which orchids grow naturally in your area?

    Yay, wild orchids! That's a nice list Tony. Here's a video from earlier in July showing some of the orchids growing in my neighborhood in southern Japan:

    I really like this one too. I've always wanted a Tamanishiki, but never was willing to shell over the bucks to buy one.

    help with Cyp. Foremosanum

    OK, I'm sorry I ever gave that advice. I don't give advice anymore unless someone pries it out of me. On the good side C. formosanum is as sturdy a Cyp as can be made. That means it is harder to kill than most, but as with any terrestrial orchid, it isn't that difficult either. This species...

    Phragmipedium warszewiczianum var. wallisii

    Wow, that is one beautifully drooping flower... shy and lovely.
