    Where are the bees?

    This hasn't been an issue in my area. I've got bees and wasps swarming my garden, but maybe that's due to the drought we'd been having that's left fewer wildflowers for them to feed on. I don't worry too much about honeybees, but it's always a delight seeing native, non-invasive bee species...

    Phragmipedium Memoria Emma Decker

    Overall it does look like it's a good quality flower.

    Paph. Chou-Yi Rookie

    They are really nice plants and great color overall. Also, the shape is great for a brachy x multi cross like this.

    I like it for the foliage alone. That's a beautiful plant.

    Paphiopedilum Predacious (adductum x glanduliferum) - all flowers open

    I'd buy it for the name alone, and the flowers are really gorgeous. Quite unique and a great mix of the best qualities of the parents.

    Paph lowii

    Pretty. I've been watching my plant for signs of a spike. It's a lovely species. This might sound like a stupid question, but is your clone fragrant? I swear mine is ... but it's sporadic.

    Paphiopedilum Ho Chi Minh

    It's pretty!

    Cat aclandiae

    It's probably my favorite Cattleya species, I love the fragrance. I've not tried growing one yet, though. I've been told they can be fussy and that someone like me who happens to be a perpetual overwaterer might be in for some trouble.

    Rhyncholaelia digbyana ‘Ford Blackwell’

    Wonderful. I finally broke down and purchased this species a little while back. No idea if I've actually got the light to bloom it, but I'm going to give it a try. And if not, I figure I can either gift it or sell it to someone who can bloom it, or perhaps my lighting situation will change for...

    Phrag klotzschianum

    It's so beautiful! A wonderful miniature species for sure. Great color on this one. How big is the plant and any chance we can get a full body shot?

    I love pretty much every hangianum I've ever seen. And I love the floppiness of many clones. I think the ones with super flat petals are actually the boring ones (still love them though). I like how much red pigmentation there is on the petals of your plant's flower.

    Paph Hung Sheng Cape

    Yeah, that's really stunning! I can see why you'd track more down.

    Cyp. candidum in situ

    Amazing! And lovely species. I'm so disgruntled with the weather honestly and about to give up on things. Last year at this time, we were in the middle of a drought and approaching 100F temperatures. This year, I can't get the veggies to grow because it's so cold and now a frost is being...

    Paphiopedilum emersonii

    It's gorgeous for sure. Such a wonderful species.

    Ho Chi Minh (made with dunkel delenatii)

    Bummer about the lack of scent but the flower is very, very nice quality and the color is excellent.

    Paph Misty Lantern x Norito Hasegawa

    That is nice and dark. Pretty interesting outcome.

    Paph. Bel Royal (kolopakingii x rothschildianum)

    Monster plant. The lip is more colorful than any Bel Royal I've seen in person, but I've seen photos of clones with lots of red like this. Otherwise, I don't find that to be an unreasonable guess as to its ID.

    Wossner China Moon

    I love it! I need to have some of these.

    Where I live we call these things "purty".
