    still a joy to see it!! thanks tindo!
    my pleurothallid order just went down, so i should be getting my cypropediodes, megalops, viduata, diminuta, and trisetela hoejieri next week. i think the diminuta should eventually qualify for a post on this thread. im glad i found it - this is a great thread, and im happy its revived!

    Thanks for the input, tindo

    Yes it is a little "poof of flowers" It resembles a fireworks explosion. It is similar to the one Colin mentioned earlier in the thread Macroclinum something it is related to Notylia

    OOOh Trisetela hoejieri, that's one I've been eyeing for some time ... unfortunately the price has been more than I've wanted to spend.

    Hmmm, well let's see, for my part I have or have had a number of similar sized ones:
    H. odorata but since Tindo already posted his, I'll skip mine

    Encyclia polybulbon, not in bloom at present -- flower dime-sized


    Ornithocephalus inflexus -- each flower about 0.4 mm across, plant 'wing span' about 4 inches


    Onc/Tol. velutinum -- have yet to bloom this one though have had for several years


    Restrepia trichoglossa -- sorry for the crappy pic --hasn't bloomed lately -- plant is about 1-1.5 inches [2.5 -4 cm] tall


    Psygmorchis pusilla [this died unfortuantely after blooming for several months. Anyone have good luck keeping this one long term?] -- flower about 3/4 inch, whole plant about 2 inches


    Den oligophyllum -- whole plant 1-1.5 inches tall


    Pleurothallis macroblepharis -- plant about 1 inch tall, flower about 0.5 inch span, bloomed well for about a year but has been unhappy since I moved

    Nice stash, Pavel!

    I love those little guys, but in someone else's collection! Looks like your camera's been busy!

    They are really nice looking 'chids. How'd you get so many pictures in one post? I thought you could only include 4??
