    Very nicely grown. Is that a Neofinetia in the first picture?

    That is a very creative combination. If you got both to flower in the same environment, I'm revising my opinion of how to grow Brassa--as I have killed every single Brassa that I have homed! Neos? So far I'm doing something right by them. Thank you for sharing your excellent plants.
