    My top three from those would be:-

    3. Encyclia fragrans (the whole cockleshell thing is cute)

    2. Bulb careyanum (I have one and it would have made number 1 except it is umm... fragrant)

    1. Dendrochilum wenzellii (such a pretty colour and makes up for size).

    Cheers
    Tim

    I don't like them except Dendrochilum wenzellii. Really nice even the leaves.
    I would like Stanhopea if there is one whose flowers last for at least few weeks .

    I'd have to go for the Stanhopea species...right after I win the lotto and buy a greenhouse. The others are nice, too. Probably next would be the Epi. fragrans.

    Now where ARE those lotto tickets.......???

    For me, the Stans first, definitely. Then the Encyclia. That Bulbo, for me?--NOT. It's just too---


    too----


    too damned bronze....

    Plus, each of them looks like it might bite if I went to fertilize.

    Mike,

    Is that really fragrans? The pic makes it look like cochleata!

    Anyway, I'd take it first, then the Bulbophyllum. Unlike Louis, the fact they look like they're about to bite is part of the attraction for me! Hmm, in reading this over, I'm afraid I'm leaving y'all with the impression I'm into really kinky stuff. Hmm.

    Rob
