    This one is sooo shiny. It looks wet and glass-like. Huntleya burtii, hmm..I will have to consult Prem's list to see what kind of orchid this is. Are the spots in the red-orange area raised? They look like bumps almost. Cool bloom!

    Cheers!

    that looks surreal, mike!! its so perfect that it looks absolutely fake.

    i find that more and more, im drawn to orchid species. its just crazy to think what some of these plants will evolve to become just to get pregnant!

    This one is very easy to grow and I grow it in LECA pellets. Intermediate conditions all around. Those are bumps, it is very heavy in substance and is just as glassy in person.

    It looks like something from The Little Shop of Horrors, and I mean that as a sincere compliment.

    Wow, that looks like a starfish. Very cool. Is it hard to grow?

    It's been very easy for me to grow. Intermediate temp and light. It's in S/H. One of the larger Huntleya species. Growths are fan shaped and flowers are near the base. This one I would recommend to all.
