    catttan and stateless,
    Thank you for your kind compliments. We live in south central Pennsylvania where winters are brutal,not because of cold per se but we get the cold,snow then warm air pushes from the south and everything turns into ice for many weeks on end.

    I have many more pictures from the summer blooms,unfortunately most were hand me downs from my brother-in-law and his partner, once they were through gracing their living room with their blooms,they were left to fend for themselves until they began to die off so I ended up with many miserable looking NOID orchid roots with little or no green on them. I did manage to bring them back to life,one of these days I should ask the members help me to ID them.

    Nice blooms! I moved this posting to the orchids of other genera in bloom, but for future posts, please post each orchid in its own thread using the name of the orchid in the title. This makes it easier to search for threads relating to your post.

    cheers,
    BD
