    LOL, not funny Margo! hahahaha... (u do know that now I'm gonna have to spend tomorrow taking lots and lots more photos to see if i could get to the pollen hahahah...) thank goodness for digital cameras.

    Thanks Bruce, you should try the Restrepias... if you have one of those Miltoniopsis, you should be able to grow these better than I can... at the nursery I go visit, they have these near the cool cell.

    Tim your Restrepia is fabulous and the pic.#1 with the flower opening is excellent.Do You know how long does the flower lasts? I have 2 (xanthophthalma and striata) Not bloomed yet, but are growing like crazy. I enjoyed seeing yours.


    I will make better: could you post a picture of the whole plant?
    this Myoxanthus serripetalus is also fantastic. congrats.
