    Cool! The striping looks as though someone grabbed the column and gave it a pull to stretch it out.

    Great growing! I don't seem to be having luck in growing my Galeottia negrensis. It has gone into decline and I don't know why. It was just repotted down into a smaller pot.

    For some reason I am not a big fan of Cymbidium's but do enjoy seeing pictures of them. Thanks Sriram!

    It is a surprise that you are having problems with a orchid species, but then we all do have those same problems! Good luck on yours, hopefully it will do well and provide you with some great blooms.

    You and Harvey should get together and try to figure out why you both seem to have a problem with this one!
