    Very nice Jeff, wonderful display and alot of them. I like the shorter stem on this laelia. So many of the rupicolous have long wandering stems. None of my rupicolous have spiked yet - I guess I better go check for sure!
    Well done.

    Excellant, Jeff! What media are you using and cultural conditions?

    I haven't repotted since I bought it 2 years ago. Looks like a basic bark mix with charcoal and pearlite. Another I have has more small gravel in it. After alll they are rock dwelling laelias. I grow them in very high light on the south side of the greenhouse. Watered well at least twice a week and misted twice daily. Heavier misting in the evening and I do put them to bed damp to wet quite often. In nature they get misted at night and that works for me as well. When I repot I will probably be using a bark base seedling mix and will add some turkey grit. They are said to be fussy when being repotted so my fingers are crossed.

    Love the final shot of this orchid showing its scale. Wouldn't have guessed it to be so small.

    Perfect blooms Jeff!

    Cheers,
