    Paph. praestans

    Hello, it's been a long while since I last posted. I'm kicking and well, but my orchid collection is in shambles.. If only I have the courage to post their current state in pictures.. Hm, maybe with some encouragement I might snap a photo or two. Anyways, this morning while tending to my...

    My Paph. Hilo Citron at TIOS

    I entered this plant at this year's Taiwan International Orchid Show. Won nothing but glad I entered the plant. Oh, and I propagated the plant after the show so now I have 7 pieces big and small. Cheers. :)

    Bulb. Elizabeth Ann -- highly recommended

    One of my favorite orchids. It's very vigorous. One of its parents is Bulb. longissimum. This species is so pretty and graceful and I used to have it, but it's difficult to keep because it's very prone to rot and old leaves and bulbs die back quickly. Elizabeth Ann doesn't do that, it grows and...

    Bulb. mastersianum and Bulb. graveolens

    Bulb. mastersianum Bulb. graveolens. This is one of the large-sized bulbos. Mine is not so well grown. I've seen plants with fist-sized pseudobulbs.

    Claudehamiltonara Hidden Gold (formerly Otaara Hidden Gold)

    This very cute mini catt opens red, quickly fades to orange and finally turns bright yellow. So it's very aptly named indeed! :) It's a near primary hybrid. The parents are Guaritonia Why Not (G. aurantiaca X Bro. sanguinea) and Brassocattleya Richard Mueller (B. nodosa X C. milleri).

    Den. leonis and Den. prostratum

    Two very similar dendrobiums... I think Den. leonis is one of the best-scented orchids out there. It's very heady vanilla. Well, when a fragrant orchid is described as smelling like vanilla (Onc. Sharry Baby, Onc. Twinkle, Neo. falcata etc.), it is usually a mixture with other scents. Not so...

    Nepenthes campanulata

    This is a small-sized species, and the only nepenthes that I grow. And when it was smaller... And last, but not least, the stringy nectar that it uses to bait insects :D:D OCfpvFEaD34 aH2vaXKbCoA

    These are the blooms from the following cross: Alma Gevaert 'Green Dome' SM/TPS X Hsinying Citron 'Ching Hua Giant' GM/TPS So after a long wait finally the majority of the seedlings have bloomed. Some of the photos were taken from funny angles, but you still get the idea...

    Paph. callosum f. vinicolor X sib (sibling blooms)

    A few years back I bought a flask of Paph. callosum f. vinicolor X sib from In-Charm. These are the first two to bloom so far. Oh well, there are 20 more to bloom, so I guess there is still hope :rolleyes:
