    I got this as Conchidium extinctorium from Tropical Exotique in spring 2018. I haven't read the paper yet, but there appears to be a paper which proposed the transfer of this to Porpax. I'm not sure how to grow it yet, but I'm keeping it at a cool-end of intermediate. I appreciate it if you have cultural tips. Link to my Orchid Borealis blog post (contains photos of dissected flowers).

    After Easter egg hunt in the morning, we went to our weekly fly-fishing. It snowed again last week, so I wan't sure if they are active, but my son caught about 15 arctic graylings, and I caught about 5. This is one of the bigger ones he caught today.

    Thanks for sharing. I saw a mayfly yesterday and thought, "haven't been fly fishing in years"! Enjoy.

    Yes, graylings have beautiful fins!

    I didn't know you used to fly-fish, Eric. I guess Upper NY probably has good trout fishing?
