    Default laelias bradei and other new additions

    My newest additions to my collection, rupicolous laelias. Back row, L. bradei and L. longipes. Front row, L. liliputana and L. kettiana. They are full size so I shouldn't have any space problems. They have cool flowers too. Can't wait to bloom them. Name:  rupicolous laelia collection 3 (Small).JPG

    Very nice Jeff -- and large (relatively speaking) plants to boot! Have you grown rups before? I have one L. liliputana myself though I have yet to succeed in blooming it.

    I have a couple L. brigeri hybrids. These are the first species. L. liliputana was the one I wanted most but after looking at what he had available and seeing the flowers on orchidspecies.com I just had to have a few more.

    Jeff, where did you get them? You may have to PM me with the vendor unless they came from a friend. The specimen plant is a real beauty!!!! And is that your growing area behind the plant? Do we get a tour??????? OOOOOPPPSSSSS I knew I'd seen it... see what happens when my Sometimers Syndrome kicks in!

    I love rupicolous laelias and they're doing well for me.
    Good luck growing them!

    (the monster Carnea is impressive!!!)
