    Didn't think I could do this, but after some thought:

    Barkeria melanocaulon
    Epidendrum magnoliae var. magnoliae
    Laelia lundii
    Maxillaria sanguinea

    What more could you want? The answer is Oncidium Sharry Baby 'Red Fantasy'! I'd happily trade [my soul] for this one. I didn't say that--oh, yeah I guess I did! Oh well, my soul is cheap. (At least it goes with the rest of me! LOL)


    Cheers,

    No particular order and I reserve the right to change my mind every ten minutes.

    I'll mix it up a little,
    and say three I'm dying to have
    (but continue to torture myself by not buying them)
    and two I absolutely could not part with.
    No photos, so colorful and flowery descriptions will have to suffice.

    Must Have

    1. Angraecum distichum
    I have this guy bookmarked, I look at it every day.
    miniature, fragrant, braided leaves. *sigh*

    2. Blc. Chia Lin
    Red, full and floofy, and fragrant!
    It doesn't matter which one either, 'New City', 'PCT', or 'Shinsu #1'
    or NoId.

    3. Gongora Pterodactyl or Atropurpurea
    Even though they are short lived bloomers, I can't
    resist that grotesque-faerie shape, and rich red coloring.
    Oh, yeah, and did I mention they're fragrant, too?

    Must Not Ever Part With

    1. Phrag. Bouley Bay
    Blooms: Large (4 x 8"), nice shape (upright, slightly curly dorsal, and long ribbony tails),
    interesting colors (red and peach, and yellowy cream and salmon), sequential/multifloral. Plant has easy care, too.
    Best flowers for making me happy, just to see them.

    2. Paph. Delenatii
    Has the most interesting mottled purple foliage,
    and is a small size so it doesn't take up 2 ft square like Bouley Bay does.
    And also has the cutest round shaped blooms, with a little purple button nose.
    The flowers are also covered with a very fine hair, so when
    you put your nose real close to the flower to smell the faint raspberry/vanilla scent,
    they gently brush your skin like velvet.
