    Default Another trip through the Orchid Conservatory

    Here are a few more photos from my latest trip to the Atlanta Orchid Conservatory - not a whole lot new going on there, but I thought you might enjoy these - and identifying them! again working without a tripod and trying to move quickly, so some are not as clear as I would like - but the color is pretty accurate.

    Hi Maura nice shots, that is Paph liemianum and the last picture is maybe Chysis limminghei.

    The new set of photos I would guess maybe Paph villosum and Bulbophyllum echinolabium.

    Great shots, Maura. The shots of Paph liemianum with the out-of-focus background and the last picture of the Bulbo are superb. thanks for sharing.

    So.... according to Zain and Yew, we have ids as follows:

    #1. Paph. liemianum

    #2. -----

    #3.------

    #4. Chysis limminghei

    # 5. Paph. villosum

    #6. --------

    #7. and #8. Bulbophyllum echinolabium (that's correct as far as I know - it was the only one that was tagged.)

    Now we need someone to fill in the blanks!

    Nice photos of some pretty orchid blooms and buds. I was going to identify the bulbo since it was blooming here last week too.

    cheers,

    Number 5 is not Paph villosum , it is not even a paph - its a Phrag - a hybrid, I can have a stab at the grex, but something like a schlimii cross I'd guess - Cardinale is the only one IO know really well, and it could be that.

    The next one down - the paph in bud - that could be villosum or any one of a dozen other species too......
