    Whew!! I thought I really got you mad this time .

    How about putting the pic back? I haven't got one like it.... well, I got a Rhynchostylis in the bag, but haven't done anything since December. I could show the pic of yours to it to encouraged it to grow at least a root .

    Hi Gin,

    I saw it briefly last night, and thought what a wonderful looking plant! It may or may not be a rhyncostylis, but it sure was pretty. Both Rhyncostylis and Aerides have species that have flowers that hang down. I can't recall the shape of the leaves coz that could also help in ID'ing the plant. From memory, it looked like a Rhyncostylis retusa... seems also like a very variable species in terms of colour...

    Good luck with the ID of the plant.

    Cheers
    Tim
