    what!? I've been oggling one of these for ages from an online grower. Just waiting for the right time to justify buying it. I think the flowers are lovely, but I guess I haven't looked much at the whole plant. Too bad you tossed yours...should have sent it up here!

    And yes, cats are awesome

    I gave away my oncidiums as the spotted leaves drove me nuts and they took up so much room. After a few months, I bought onc. Twinkle, a zygo, and Burrageara Nelly Isler 'Swiss Beauty' without thought. I guess I can't resist the flowers.
    I think the nicest orchid leaves are the 'mini vanda types'. I l love the neos, ascocentrum, angraecums, podangis dactylocera, and aerangis. They are all so nicely arranged and they have been resistant to anything unsightly so far. I also like the Sedirea japonica (Daruma type), psychopsis Mendenhall, and the leaves of paph delentalii.
    Sand Tiger, you start really great discussions! It is great to have you on the forum!!!!
