    Here's a pretty thing, whatever it should be called ; I bought it as O gracilis, but it doesn't fit what IOSPE says and shows about that species. The flowers here are 1/2 inch natural spread - 15mm, and the pics are fairly true to colour - perhaps they are a bit brighter and lemoner in real life. The canes, called ramicauls when they look like this ( the same word is used in Masdevallias ) , are thin circular things - the flowers are at the top in the bunch, just like some cattleyas, for this is a genus in the laeliniae ; the leaves are thin and distinctly terete, and the weight of them causes the arching.
    These plants have the lovely feature of flowering for several years from the same canes - I don't mean that the flowers last that long ! no, but next year there will be a new batch from the same canes, as well as from any new ones I grow.
    One of my birthday presents this year from my dearly beloved, so only in my possession for a few weeks but it seems to like it here since it has produced these flowers and a couple of new leads ; I'll repot it soon.

    What a bright yellow orchid flower. Don't know this orchid either. Fun to see so many new orchids.

    cheers,
