    Default Good eyes needed to see my Trichoglottis triflora

    Here seen in a 7cm pot - thats not much more than 2 and 1/2 inches across ; but three growths ( original and two keikis) and three spikes. The flowers may be a whole 2mm across -( wow ! ) really too small to measure, especially with my sight at the moment ( I have an appointment at hospital on Thursday to have an implant designed for me, to be installed in a a few weeks time - until then I had to take some piccys and blow them up real large to know what the flowers look like - which is much like any ultra-miniature vandaceous flower to tell the truth , I guess. But it takes all sorts to make an interesting orchid house.
    But don't bother to hunt for this if your taste is really into dinner plate vandas !

    Those are such crisp photos, even with your eyesight problem you have managed to click really beautiful photos ! Good luck with your appointment on Thursday. Hows your wife doing, I think she also had a surgery.

    What a great orchid - and that's a vanda I could fit in my collection!!

    Geoff, I'm so glad you're keeping us in the loop with your schedule this summer. We wish you and your wife the very best.
