    The rattlesnake orchid, I look forward to the blooming of this spike. You have also confirmed that you can mount on PVC, which I have been thinking of doing but was not sure if it would work, I use PVC for the structure of my sheds.

    I think the first two flowers in the last picture are the ones fully open Jack. Don't think they open any further. Its a cute and often neglected genus.
