    this is really a tough one, since the top three on any list seem to change a lot for me. lol. to make this easier i will even do categories....

    asian orchids:
    1. cymbidium ensifolium 'ma ehr' (more stiff upright form. i can't remember but it may also be slightly variegated)
    2. neofinetia falcata 'benisuzume' (a pink one, though a yellow one would be nice too)
    3. sedirea japonica 'daruma' (has the round leaves)
    note: these are a total fantasy as they are super expensive and i'm still not sure if i can even grow them!

    everything else (i reserve the right to change this at any time):
    1. enc/now epi/ now prostheceae (or whatever) radiatum
    2. phal. gibbosa
    3. stereochilus anything

    i'd also love one of the all white zygo hybrids adelaide orchids has done. zga. pine road 'ice' is to die for. i also happen to know you can get a division for only $10 000 US. lol

    so yeah, expensive taste, no room, and too much enthusiasm = me
    hehe

    So, why did you ask about these specifically, Mike?

    In the order listed (not preference, per se): Stan, encyclia and bulb. (That is one scary bulb!)

    1. Encyclia fragrans

    2. Bulbophyllum careyanum

    3. Don't have a #3 of those listed...

    Was curious though, Mike, in the photo of Epi. palacea, is that a Central American giant star leaf begonia I see in the background? I love these, but mine got so big I had to pass it on. Woe is me who doesn't have an enormous greenhouse!

    I think so, Matt. I have tried to kill the thing countless times but it's a trooper. Looks really nasty with those spike like hairs on it.

    Sounds like that's it...if the hairs are red? Mine is at my folks in Iowa... I thought it was doing well at my place, but my step-mom has doubled its size since I had it, and she said it's been in non stop bloom since early February, one shoot after another.

    From what I understand, these use to be a fairly common plant, and now they are rare to come by, because they were banned from sale in the zones of the U.S. where it can survive. I guess this is because it can take over land and plant resources fairly quickly. Despite this, it is one of my favorite plants.

    Yep, same plant. I don't think I have to worry about it taking over WA. Mine gets big then I put it in a dark spot and it dies back and I feel sorry for it and it gets big again. A love hate relationship.

    So why were you asking, Mike? (I mean the original question.)
