    Another chamer - tell me, how do you afford all these beauties? And how do you take care of them? You some kind of rich guy who gets to spend all day with his plants. Envious, Envious, Envious.....

    Default I work six days a week in four different places.

    Most of the time I take pictures after dinner, before I go to bed from exhaustion.

    I wish I had the time you're suspecting.

    Because most of the public is used to big, gaudy hybrids, many species plants have no takers, except for serious collectors. On the other hand, some of them are priced like gold-coated candy, until you realize that you can't possibly buy similar plants elsewhere in thw world.

    These orchids are native in the Philippines.

    Most people here in the Philippines do not like native orchids except for a few.
    Native orchids do not bloom always (Common growers like them blooming all year round, They prefer Dendrobium hybrids, Cattleya, Vanda hybrids etc....)
    Native orchids may bloom once or twice a year.

    Nice job!!!!!

    First off.. welcome to the forum Rence...

    And I understand what you mean about people prefering 'exotics'... however, I love filo orchids... of course, I find very few that can be grown in the cooler climates... so if you have any ideas of which one would be good to grow in say the Sydney climate, then please let me know...

    Cheers

    Oh, that is very cool. Looks kind of like a small version of Odontoglossum Rawdon Jester.

    Hi, thanks for welcoming me to this forum!
    I think Dendrobium anosmum and its varieties may be suited in Sydney....
    I am not that sure what is your average temperature during day and night time summer- winter....
    But this orchid grows very well in Taiwan and China
