Just wanted to share some recent/current blooms. I wasn't expecting to spend so much time indoors this summer, but pandemic + the entire west coast being on fire changed all that. Orchids make holing up at home tolerable.;) You guys always post such well composed, pro-photographer shots. Please forgive my crappy impromptu iPhone pics.

Paph Lynleigh Koopowitz + Paph Vanda Pearman (Aug)




Paph Wossner Ministar w/ Lynleigh Koopowitz + Cam's Cloud + Mint Chocolate in the background. (Sept)



Paph concolor var striatum (Sept)



Paph Tyke working on joining the bloom party. (Sept)


I also have a Doll's Kobold and Greyi in-bud and venustum and druryii in-spike.

Very nice collection you have!! Beautiful flowers!

I noticed you have square shaped pot instead of round pots. You like the square ones better?

Thank you! I use the Rand air cone pots for a couple reasons, but mainly because I have limited space and the squares fit nicely and neatly all together.

Nice flowers... you seem to get the most out of the limited space! And that Wössner Ministar is a cutie, indeed!

Paph Tyke wide open this morning!



The Paph Mint Chocolate is actually all sorts of beat-up and wonky. Luckily, I have another bud in the queue.


I really like the bloom on the Paph Cam's Cloud because of the mostly white petals and heavier coloration of the pouch.
