    My caudatum(s) from Orchid Zone are now flowering. I am really happy with the two plants and while I have a distinct favorite among the two, I am glad that the two plants actually turned out fairly different. I'll hopefully have a friend come take better pictures while the flowers are still in good shape but went ahead and took some phone pictures last night in case that doesn't occur. Not the best pictures but pretty good for a phone...

    Very, very nice. Attractive plant habit, too.

    Can you share some culture info? Mine is growing really well but doesn't want to flower. Five or six growths but no flowers yet.

    I like the photos without the flash much better, but all the
    photos show wonderful, well-grown plants.

    So nice! Great job blooming both at the same time, too. These ought to be even more spectacular in a few years.

    Great flowers, one of the best I have ever seen, very nice contrast between compact plant and big flowers!
