    they really are pretty little flowers with an excellent color... i just happened to have a small open space in a pot filled with possibly larger calanthes or some sort of phaius, maybe a mixture... i cant remember and the plants in this pot have been getting themselves 'situated' for quite a long, long time... they have some rather large spikes developing so im very excited... i think one of the spikes may belong to a native taiwanese calanthe i rescued from the rocks at the bottom of a waterfall where we go swimming in the summer... not usually one to take plants out of the wild but a few pieces of a larger clump of plants higher up got washed down... they were just dashed on the rocks...what was i to do?

    I totally understand. I get clumps of airplants from a neighbor and recently a clump of Tampensis that blew onto the ground out of trees. They would rather walk them over and put them on my porch than throw them into the trash. It is difficult to turn away something that would die otherwise.

    Sweet flowers, Shane!

    Connie, if you get over inundated with tillandsia, you can always send them up to me.

    Beautiful flowers Shane. I especially like the ridges on the lip. Rather distinctive. I also like the fact that you are a 'compassionate orchid rustler'. AL

    ya, my boyfriend's sister just gave me her older camera (not really that old, she just wanted to buy a new one) so im still getting used to working the thing! most of these were test shots... working out all the settings, thats why they tend to look different in each pic!
