    Default Chiloschista parishii in bloom

    This is one of those 'leafless' orchids. There are a few very rudimentary leaves during the growing season but these soon dry up and drop off, just leaving a mass of roots.The spikes emerge from the very short tiny stems that can hardly be seen, Each flower is slightly less than 1/2 an inch. These pictures have been hurriedly taken just before the family went for a week's island vacation and they don't do justice to these delightful little blooms. BTW my plant is from Thailand.

    I tried many times to grow an Chiloschista, but I lost all my plants.

    As I mentioned earlier, this picture was taken in a hurry; actually just before we left the house for our journey. I normally take great care when photographing my plants. I belong to the 'old school' where we were taught that if something is worth doing then it is worth doing well. These untidy pictures and less than sharp results go to prove how true the old adage is. BTW that 'dried leaf' is the leaf of Trichocentrum (Oncidium) Serevent. This plant had been exposed to too much sun, thus the yellowish colour and the brown purplish spots. If I had taken my usual steps to prepare properly for the shoot I would have made sure that that ugly looking leaf did not intrude into the picture. Thanks for your comments.

    Sorry to hear that, Mietek. I am sure you'll be able to replace them.
