    Oh so jealous! Lovely flower you have...another recent casualty for me however. One of these days I will learn to spend more money and get established divisions!

    no idea, i had two experimental flasking out there, second attempt. a phalenopsis pulcherrima and a catasetum integerrimum x catasetum chong keng yong (about 3 weeks old both of them). i think i had enough of flask. got no intention to sow any of the gracillimum because currently i am planning to downsize my bulbo colelction, not expanding them.

    Ian - what beautiful shape, and even more intense color! You must be very gratified. The photos are outstanding - I especially like the 2nd one. Nice work!
