    Cool Coilostylis oerstedii

    When I recieved this plant it was marked as "ciliare", so I was expecting the fuzzy looking lip. Several months later, it has now bloomed and I found out I had the solid lip, known as "oerstedii". Still pretty, but the vendor will be sending me the ciliare soon.

    Yes Angela you are so right! I am very lucky. I keep catching myself staring at my pictures of these lovely flowers. It was a fortunate mistake, and the vendor is being kind and allowing me to choose a couple more plants to send with the Ciliare and they are covering my shipping for the mistake. I am always pleasantly suprised at how honest most orchid vendors are these days!
