    Default Current blooms!

    A noid Paph that just recently bloomed:



    Epicattleya Rene Marques (this is the little guys first blooming. I got it as a bag baby over the summer and it's already rewarded me! A for effort ):



    Noid oncidium alliance orchid:



    Noid cattleya alliance:



    Lots of noids, I know, but named orchids are hard to come by and I love my noids for what they are, not who They're all so pretty!

    Well done with getting them to bloom! Amazing how they are all so different and so many colours! Love the colour on the Epicattleya. The noid oncidium, I'm pretty sure, is a Colmanara Wildcat, but which variety will be hard to figure out. Also, really nice Paph.. hopefully it opens up more to reveal more of that lovely dorsal!

    Lovely blooms! Congratulations. I really like the one in the last photo. I wonder if it is a Richard Muller type cross. Someone (likely Ron) will probably know. Did it change colors after blooming?

    Cheers,

    Thank you everyone! Yes, it did change colors...it started out hot pink and yellow, but the pink faded and now it's mainly just yellow.

    I LOVE the Epi.! Went to a local grower yesterday and the couple had one in bloom but didnt want to sell it since it was their only one.. I was very sad.

    Congrats on all the bloomers !
