Very cool. Cool being the unfortunate word as I'm located near Sacramento. We don't grow those very well in these parts, but I enjoy seeing them.

That strobelli is really neat! It's amazing what closeups will capture! Great job!

I went thru the first half of your pics. Is there any plants that you don't have? What dedication!
There were some that WOW 'ed me:
Slc.Angel's Fantasy 'Flaming Splash' - different, the color, veining.
Jungle Gem 'Gold Country' & Jungle Elf - nice, different w/ red/maroon spots on a yellow/gold background.
Soph. cernua 'aurea' - lovely yellow!
Masd. Sunset Jaguar 'Night Breed' -just awesome!
Dend. torresae - interesting p/bulbs!
and the different flower types on the plumerias, I caught myself inhaling, but I had to imagine!
I'll go back for part 2 this afternoon!

FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

Oh how I wish I could grow those babies in my conditions. I can't keep them cool enough. I keep trying, keep losing them, and now have given up.

Will you tell me what sort of temps the strobellii 'isabelle' requires? I have really enjoyed the masd. I have aquired so far. I have not see this one advertised anywhere.

This one is grown intermediate. I have it in the greenhouse on the floor where the temps range from 50 degree minimum to a high of 85 degrees in the summer. You can find this species usually at the sale booths at shows. Ecuagenera carries it.
