    Default Coilostylis (formerly Epidendrum) oerstedii

    Quite pathetic really. Space is nonexistent as it is and what do I do? Buy some additional orchids (and actucally there's still one I wish I had picked up). *sigh* Couple folks I know of were reducing their collections as they either plan on moving or can't afford to heat their greenhouse. So went not really expecting to find much that I wanted as soooooo many folks are still on the paph/phrag kick (most of which just doesn't tug at my heartstrings and I kill them all anyway) or otherwise grow plants way too big for me.

    Of those I picked up, these were in bloom:

    Coilostylis (formerly Epidendrum) oerstedii -- though I suspect it is misidentified -- the lip just doesn't seem right. Looks more like Coilostylis ciliaris or ciliaris hybrid. Quite fragrant in the evening.

    Default Oh and lest I forget

    Almost didn't pick this one up as it is rather similar to my Pot Hoku Gem 'Superspots', but I liked the clear, bright lemon yellow petals. Overall very nice flower form, IMO

    Pavel,

    We can never have too much money, or too many orchids!! What a stunning collection you picked up. They're all gorgeous, but I gotta tell you that Pot. Beaufort gold 'Susan Fender' is really tugging at my heartstrings. Guess I'm going to have to add that one to the wish list for sure.

    Thank you so much for sharing these with us. They're making me smile!!

    I really like the epidendrum (sorry, coilostylis )
    What is the last one? Must be a Mueller hybrid.

    Pavel, all the four are real beauties, I will be dreaming about the Potinara and the Slc hybrid for quite some time I think. They both go to my must have list. Thanks for sharing !

    Hi pavel I would be very happy with these updates in my house.
    The coilostylis - first-is really very intriguing. The bl, slc and pot are all very cool. Love the colours.Thanks and congrats.

    Those are all beauties Pavel. I especially like the Epidendrum. I also have a Crystell Smith "Aileen' and it's quite different from yours! I really like yours!
