    Paph. Lady Isabel 'White Tiger' x 'Charles E'

    I bought this plant in 2010 from a guy who had to downsize. Turns out he first repotted the plant in 1999. This is the plant's first bloom and it's probably around 20 years old. It's 'White Tiger' x 'Charles Edwards'. Looks like I'll be able to get 4 flowers out of it next time, hopefully it...

    Phrag besseae?

    This is my friends. She bought it in bud and it is her first besseae. I tried to make her feel better by telling her, "it's probably very unique, and some people prefer that." It's a pure besseae, right?

    roth. (Green Valley x Dou Fong)

    I can't take credit for blooming it, I bought it in low spike at the POE. I know it will never win any awards, but it's my first roth and I couldn't be happier with it. It was so much fun watching it open. The NS is only ~23cm, but I'm sure it would be bigger if grown ideally.

    Take a guess, found in Santa Cruz Mountains

    I went orchid hunting this weekend (we only take photos and try not to trample anything) and found this isolated population growing on a cliff. I think I know what it is, but I believe some of you would enjoy guessing. I highly encourage anyone who hasn't yet tried looking for...

    Paph. St. Swithin

    phil x roth There are better ones out there but I'm very pleased with it, especially since it's a window plant. This is the second time it has bloomed this year. The petals look a lot longer in person.

    Paph. anitum now available in Canada

    Just did a quick search for anitum and found that Forestview Gardens is selling them. Sorry if this is old news, and no, they don't ship to the US. Link to Forestview Gardens species list.

    Newest Carnivorous Plant Here's the first paragraph. It could require a re-imagining of The Day of the Triffids – scientists have discovered a new type of carnivorous plant that traps and devours its prey...

    Poll of the week?

    I thought it might be nice to have a poll to respond to every week. I can guarantee that we will only have one every week if someone else remembers to start a new thread (Hint Hint). Please let me know if there are any errors in this poll or if you would like another option.

    I need to vent

    So I have a friend who is in Taiwan for the next 16 months and I have tasked her with finding me a Paph. anitum flask. Today she emails me pictures of the local market and this is what I saw. I'm lucky to see one of these at my local orchid meeting, and I only see them for sale online or...
