    Beautiful! It reminds me of the beauty of the coral reefs. Great pics, Ron.

    Well that just goes to show that you should never assume that just because you have only ever seen little ones, that they are only ever little!

    Kerry the diversity of this genus is amazing. There are minuscule ones where the p-bulb are only a millimeter in size and ones with p-bulbs the size of grapefruit with 5 foot long leaves. Flower size varies greatly too. I have some neat ones in spike presently that I will be posting over the next couple of weeks.
