    Nice mass of 'shrubbery' you have there, Eric.

    Vey pretty ! Mine still shows no sign of blooming. A week ago the vendor brought in a plant he hoped to show at the Penang Orchid Show which is currently being held in Penang but most of the blooms were spoilt in transit from Thailand only a few flowers were still intact. This is a selected clone with blooms of full, round, overlapping form and a deep, bright yellow colour and deep purple lip. In short, the best houlletiana I have ever seen. I managed to pry it off the vendor for a price I would normally not pay for a vandaceous, let alone an Aerides. But, boy am I happy! Hopefully it will bloom for me next season.

    Such a cheerful color in this Aerides orchid. Sorry about the third spike. This is still so stunning with the two spikes of blooms.

    cheers,
