    i hope that somebody could ID them for me... thanks in advanced.

    Randy, the Cirrho isn't open yet so ID might be difficult till it does. Then there are so many it might be hard. Check this website out and the home work may get easier.

    Default Photo Update

    Here's the updated photos of the cirro. First photo is the front view of the blooms, second is the whole plant, third top view of the bloom and last the bottom view of the
    bloom.

    thanks, this isn't my first bulbo/cirro, but this is the first time i've had one in bloom (no credits to me). And to be honest, it seems that these guys are camera shy,
    they're too darn difficult to photograph as the blooms/spike sways in the slightest breeze. Oh and this one isn't smelly. I still have a few more bulbos/cirro that i am
    eager to see in bloom.

    thanks ron, i looked at makoyanum and it does look similar.
    as for the coelogyne, i think i have narrowed it down to sparsa or merrillii, but im
    leaning towards sparsa.
