    Diane, he did not upload his pictures to RVO, he put them in photobucket and just paste the link in here.

    I think a couple of mine count.

    Dendrobium rigidum (Sadly, this one has gone to the compost pile in the sky)
    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...hlight=rigidum

    And a new one for me. Ornithochilus fuscus. I know nothing about it but so far so good. the flowers are about 0.5 cm wide and have the faintest fragrance. Kind of hard to photograph with my camera so I apologize for the poor quality of the pics. My camera just can't take pictures that close up.



    Sophronitis cernua. Not sure if this one counts. both the plant and flower are small, though much bigger than the other two I posted.


    I also have a Dendrobium cucumernium, two promeneas which I recently got, and 2 dendrochilums. Those last two... the plants are a pretty good size but the flowers themselves are pretty small.

    Nah, haven't been taking that many pics lately. Several of those pics were old ones.

    Ptazek, Ornithochilus fuscus has been on my want list for about 6 years now. Hadn't found anyone who carried it.

    Colin, if you can get that Pysgmorchis to live for more than a few months, please let me know what you're doing! I want to try the lil bugger again but would like to have an idea of what I need to do next time.

    Glad you knew the answer, Qing! I honestly wouldn't have made the connection. I do links out of habit and don't even think about it anymore.

    Smile My smallest and my biggest

    A beautiful mini Phaenopsis 'Mini Holmes Mark'. This is the first flower for this plant and it is 1 inch across. As a contrast I have a big Phal with 4 inch flowers. Both are in bloom now.

    DesertGal,

    What's the exact name on your mini Phal? I love that little guy, but can't find it listed.
