    Default Driftwood Projects - Part 2

    Here's some more of my works in progress. Some are still young seedlings so it will take a few years before they would take on full form.

    "High and Low"
    Den. kingianum paired with a Cym NOID / vertical driftwood posted on wood basket.

    I'm not sure if the cymbidium will work out in that cramped space. I will probably replace it with a compact cattleya or mini-oncidium.

    "Romeo and Juliet"
    Cattleya guttata and Cattleya aurantiaca
    This piece pays homage to two of the popular parent species in the cattleya alliance.

    This next piece is still not done. It looks awfully similar to a previous work I have done so I might replace the orchid with another genus.
    I am thinking a Brassavola nodosa or Leptotes bicolor would work better than the cane dendrobium.

    Those are all really cool. Again, I love the presentation. Mounties really hate me, though really...I have one tolumnia mountie and it's about all I can handle at this point.
