    Default Sobralia bouchei

    Sobralia bouchei is in bloom for us - should say was in bloom for us. This orchid blooms for one day and then the flower dies away. I believe it is native to Panama. I am sorry the photos are not better. I will do my best to capture it again on the next bloom. As you can see, the bloom here is already closing again. Enjoy.

    LOL. I couldn't begin to count! Here is a shot from our 'About RVO' page. This is back when things were under control orchid wise. Now, not an inch of space anywhere to be found. I have been hanging orchids from other orchids. LOL!
