    While they will never win a beauty prize, I do find them qluite intriguing and agree that the rachis itself is the most interesting aspect.

    I must admit I agree with Brit. Does it scare him that you put effort into growing things such as these? What will you grow next?? No Little Shop of Horrors any time soon, I hope!

    Haha! No, he isn't bothered at all actually...well maybe he's a little jealous occasionally. I'm sure he would like more of my attention and I am well aware that he is annoyed by the fact that my leaving town takes an act of Congress. He's slightly involved with my hobby but won't admit to his interest.Posted via Mobile Device

    Very cool bloom. Was just reading about these on the beach today. I believe they are referred to as beetle orchids--obviously because of their appearance and the straight line they form. Jason you are not the only one that has a hard time going on vacation and leaving the orchids behind. We are currently on vacation. How lame can one get to be on one of the most beautiful beaches in MA. ---Cranes Beach--- and spend your time in the beautiful September sun reading books on orchid species. That gave the OH plenty of ammo for the future. LOL

    This one was in standard bark mix. Nothing too fancy. Just open and water retentive.
