    First is Blc. Oconee x Blc. Sunset Sail. Got it in August blooming and couple more sheaths on it- one didn't make it at al and the second one had deformated flowers... Now is blooming again and this time I get the credit for two beautiful blooms, another two buds will open in a few weeks and couple sheaths!!! (I think I am doing good...?!)

    This little guy is Dend Ekapol 'King Dragon' x Dend Anucha 'Flare'. It was one of a bunch that I ordered online back in June and most of them were almost dead when the package arrived (coming from Miami which is appx hour and half driving from where I live). Some of them I was able to nurse back and here is the best reward ever! I think it will open tomorrow.
