    Aerides houlletiana, medium size, 2 spikes.
    Rhy coelestis Blue
    Rhy coelestis Pink
    Both Rhy. stud plants from the nursery. Top quality blooms

    Last week.

    Mok. Khaw Phaik Suan x Ascda Gua Chia Long.
    Paph concolor v Hennisianum

    Most of those would slowly die in my collection, except for the last 2. I killed one retusa already. Good luck with them and I can't wait to see their blooms!

    A pic of the plants that arrived last Friday.
    Back left Rhy retusa, back right, Aerides houlletiana
    Front left Rhy coelestis V Pink and coelestis V Blue on right.
    The stake on the houlletiana is for support till it settles in.
    They look a bit rough but will improve here.
