    I too am fortunate enough to have a grocery store nearby that often has a nice selection of orchids at good prices--mostly noids. Yesterday, they had a large batch of bronze cyms for $23, some smaller intergenerics and a masdevallia for $8, and some others at an intermediate price. I was so tempted by a dark red intergeneric, but I simply have no more room!!

    Janet, you could squeeze some of your plants and put another one right next to it. Ta Da. You could go 'vertical'.

    Beautiful Brassavola, good choice. It could also be Brassavola Grand Stars.

    Wow... In our grocery stores there are only half dead phal. So I rarely see any good ones... Nice find! I think It is a B. Nodosa or B.Little Stars which one of it's parents are B. Nodosa...

    It followed you????? I'll put it in my excuses list! Yep, looks like B. nodosa. Here we call her "Dama de Noche" (Lady of the Night). They like to be mounted better than pots.
