    Default Chiloschista species

    These were purchased at the NY show in 2005 from a Thai vendor. It is a leafless orchid although occasionally I will get a very very tiny leaf form.

    How big is the bloom? Is this one of those tiny little ones?

    Cheers,

    They're lovely, like little wedding cake flowers. The sparkly background is cool too!

    I bought one a few weeks ago, it is parishii, it has green speckles. I mount it on a rack made from hardware cloth. I can't wait to see it bloom.

    Cute little flowers. Now I can print the pics and show them to mine, or maybe I should leave well enough alone. A week ago a noticed a small growth going in the wrong direction on my Chiloschista useneoides, as it has elongated it is definitely a spike. Now I have to practice patience. Does anyone know how long these things take to develop? It seems to be going pretty slowly.
