    Looks like you have a bunch of blooms on this one, Nelson! I don't have any Erias, but enjoy seeing the ones you and others post here in OrchidTalk. Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers,

    Two Eria's in as many days . Now I'm tempted to buy that Eria javanica I've always wanted!

    LOL, Stephen! I look at a lot of green on mine for just two days of blooms and a flamingo poo scent.

    I've thought many times about finding it a new home, but I really am taken with the genus. It's flowering habit is so bizarre - it pushes spikes right through the wall of the p-bulb, and they grow and bloom in about two days from when they first emerge, and then they die two days later. Talk about hurry up and wait! All year, and then the entire show is started and finished in a few days!

    The stem (pseodobulb?)is about 8 inches long. Similar to the Eria sp. aff. carnicolor.
