Went to my local orchid show this year and went a little crazy! I also got to help out with an orchid show for the first time, so that was fun. Anyway, here's what I got:



List (no particular order):
Paph. micranthum (in bloom)
Paph. micranthum v. eburneum (in bud/bloom)
Paph. micranthum fma. album
Paph. hangianum
Paph. emersonii
Paph. sanderianum (flask)
Paph. Crouching Tiger (in bloom)
Mex. xerophyticum 'Windy Hill'
Mex. xerophyticum 'Oaxaca'
Phrag. longifolium var. roezlii
Phrag. Sorcerer's Apprentice 4N x Phrag. Grande 4N (in spike/bud)
V. (Neo.) falcata 'Amami'
Vanilla planifolia
Phal. mariae (mounted)

When I get a chance or when they open, I'll post individual bloom pictures in the right forum section. Show pictures coming when I get them organized...

VERY nice haul! You done goooooood! If you have the conditions for mounting, the mariae prefers a good LARGE cork mount. I have a very
large, old one that gave me over a hundred blooms last year. This one
seems to like a bit more light than most Phals.

What were the cichlids? Using water from a discus tank was Terry Roots' secret to great slippers.

Post pics of the Phrag and Micran Eub when they bloom.
