    Default My current obsessions

    These are the top items on my wishlist, and first priority for the next order. Thought a few of you might like the pleurothallid prettiness, so here are some pics - Almost forgot! They are (in order): Pleuro. cypripedioides; Zootrophion griffin, Pleuro. scheidei; Trisetella hoijeri; Pleuro. Megalops.

    They're certainly unusual Col! I like the Pleuro scheidei the most, but won't knock any back!

    I bought my first Pleuro alliance plant the other day too - Restrepia wagneri... alas, can't find anything on it, and it isn't blooming yet so can't tell for sure what it is... maybe mislabelled

    Really great - I think those are so fascinating. Wish I had time/conditions to try some.

    Colin these are great. I really like Pleuro. cypripedioides & Pleuro. scheidei the best. Keep us updated on your progress!

    Cheers!

    ok, the zootrophion griffin and pleuro. scheidei are getting temporarily backburned to make room for the Pleuro. diminuta and Pleuro./ancipitia viduata. Order's goin through later this week. photographic updates will surely follow. *GIDDY!!*

    4 pleuros and a trisetella (pleurothallid tribe[alliance?]) - am i a little too obsessed with these tiny little guys? i thought the 5 new pleurothallids i acquired saturday would temporarily satiate me, but they just made me want more!! i need help...

    would it help if I said that the more you spend on orchid the less you have for beer?
