    Stunning plants, and wonderful photos, Forrest! Good job on both counts!

    I have a couple Pleurothallidinae in bloom right now (a Masd. and a Stelis). I'll go post some pics over in the gallery.

    In the meantime, I thought I'd recommend Zootrophion as a fun, often ignored, and weird genus. In my experience, they're relatively tolerant of varying conditions, although they do like humid intermediate conditions. The only one I have that blooms regularly (2-3x a year) is Zoo. endressianum. Here's a pic.

    It's in a 4" pot. The flowers don't open any more than that; just little slits on the side. Like eyes. Hence the genus name: Zootrophion = Animal Heads.

    Default Very neat

    I have been reading up on these a little. Something about the flower design, they are torn apart by their pollenator? Still very interesting (though the wife would call these "ugly"...but she likes Orlando Bloom, so...go figure lol
