    Cool Scaphosepalum breve

    I grow this little guy next to my vandas as it loves full morning and evening sun, lots of water and fertilizer and good air movement. It was in spike when I received the plant a month ago, and so far this is my first bloom. I had it in the wrong spot and once I moved it to the vanda section it threw it's first weird little flower out.

    These were two of the best out of at least two dozen attempts. lol They are very hard to photograph. I trick my camera by putting my finger or hand next to the flower. And then when it gets focused on the right spot I take my hand away. Sometimes it works...sometimes not.

    Congrats, Connie! Scaphs are amongst my favorite orchids but my luck with them was poor at best. Keep hoping to find an inexpensive one at a show to give it another go.
