I thought there was an echinolabium in there. Mine is in bloom again. I have nicknamed him 'Big Stink'. Lovely flower though.
I think my biggest addiction is knowledge. I love to learn new things.
And I am glad for it.
Wonderful shots, how could anyone be bored with them?
I can put names on quite a few of these, and yet more are known to me, but the name doesn't quite come to my tongue !
Shoot 1 - 2nd pic - can't recall today - will think of it soon ! It's a SE Asian terrestrial - many species, each one a different colour...
Shoot 2 - 1st pic Paph spicerianum
2nd pic Prosthechea radiata ( probably)
Shoot 3 1st pic, not an orchid, may be Clerodendron thompsonii
2nd pic - several "cockle shell orchids" are similar - lets say Encyc ( or whatever genus name you want) cochleatum.
Shoot 3 - 3 and 4 are Phrag hybrids .
4th may be Cardinale or Schlimii.
Shoot 4 first pic a besseae hybrid Phrag
2nd pic Paph species in the liemanianum/chamberlainianum/moquettianum group ( read Cribb - two pages on how to tell the difference... I can't even with the book open and all of the supposedly different species in flower in front of me ! )
3rd pc probably P.primulinum, but could be it's hybrid Pinocchio,
fourth pic- a Jumellea species - may be sagittatus - I've never seen one that big - wow ! Mine is now 20 years old and has four or five growth - I'll stop feeling boastful about it !
Fifth shoot - a hybrid in my collection - unless it's died ! I have a feeling that its a Mclennanara or something like that , but can't bring it to mind today.
third pic - P. spicerianum again
4th pic a dend hybrid - but you knew that of course.
sixth shoot 1st and 2nd pics , Paphinia , probably herrerae - fantastic flowers the size of a saucer, with the tesxture of fine tissue , but an easy plant to kill I think - I am on my third plant....
3rd pic Coelogyne - may be Lyme Regis but more likely one of its parents - can't remember them and won't stop to look up.
seventh shoot . Bulbophyllum echinolabium , or perhaps its hybrid Valley Isle.
2nd pic - Bulbo medusae I think... but I am slightly unsure of this one.
3rd pic is a well known Brasso-Laelia hybrid ( I think thats the combbo ; the specific name is two very short words hyphenated, something like Mai-Mo - but again its in my collection and I can't quite pin the name down.
4th pic - a Barkeria species (probably) since hybrids are pretty rare , but I don't know which one.
!!! I was not bored at ALL! I wish I could see it. In Colorado unless you want to spent lots of money$$ You have to settle for Phal. from supermarkets that have weird sickness... Hope you had fun at the show!
LC. Makai should be Bsn Maikai -( I checked it out in the latest Orchidwiz) which is Brassavola nodosa x Cattleya ( now Guarianthe) bowringiana. Bsn is the abbreviation for Brassanthe . It is of course this whole Laelia/cattleya etc alliance which has been subject to so much name changing as the DNA people do their thing. In the old registers it was Brassocattleya !
