    It's cute, and I like the color. Ron, your collection is so diverse, I feel like I get an education every time I look at one of your pictures! Thanks so much for sharing your pics and the accompanying info.

    Very nice, Ron. I agree with Ang, you do have a very diverse collection. It must make you smile.

    Cheers,

    my collection does make me smile at times, particularly when I bloom things that have been a challenge. I love oddities. i received a few cool species from my very good friend, who allows me room in his greenhouses to grow my collection. He just got back from an orchid buying trip to Holland and Germany. He brought me a Phal parishii with a bluish cast to it's lip as well as a Bulbo macrobulbon and a angraecoid species that is suppose to have orange fowers. This was a good week. I also received, from trades, 5 other new Phal species, 2 new terrestrials, a new Coelogyne species, a couple of Compariettia speciosa seedlings and a new Pleuro. I also won an on-line auction for a new Bulbo species. Talk about being out of control, LOL. I am making up for not attending any shows this spring.

    Here is a full plant shot and a clearer close-up, taken last year. The plant with the spike stands about 6" tall. The Japanese has bred these into many different color forms and these are highly collectible in Japan. When the leaves die back, in the fall, I place it in my greenhouse window(over the kitchen sink) where it will stay cool and totally dry until l see growth again in April. I have my pot of Ptetrostylis nutans and curta sitting there now in a dry rest. Terrestrials can be fun and many of them you don't have to care for during 1/2 the year.

    It's really lovely. I have never seen one during my trips to Japan, but then I am never invited into someones house... (It's just not done there).
