    What a lovely great hairy monster - like something out of a wonderful children's book. We ought to be able to give it a good name, , like -( just off the cuff) - the ginger marmalade stone-age man cirrho ? I love it ... I'll have to try and delve a bit further and find out what it is - it certainly is my kind of orchid.

    ( I have been experimenting in the site, clicking on this and that, to find out what they do- it occurred to me that those little pics at top left are nice, but go past too fast (sometimes) to really see them - especially if i'm in slow mode ... I'm in slow mode tonight, I have a stinking cold, feel really sorry for myself, and finished off that bottle of Semillon blanc or whatever which my wife said should last for tomorrow... good job I am not driving anywhere until at least tomorrow...

    lol., "the ginger marmalade cirrho.."!

    thanks guys!

    @randy,
    i have the fuji hs10 and use a raynox 250 super macro lens for occasions like you see above. it works pretty well and im seeing stuff, which i havent before!
    my cirrho is mounted on a piece of coconut husk, a lil moss on the sides, and i water it every day. it gets full morning sun until 11am or so, i noticed that cirrho's need more sun than their bulbo cousins.
