    I wish I had more time for orchids. I really wanted to start up a stanhopea/gonogra/coryanthes collection. They deserve better though.

    PS - I am very keen on this one you have.

    Very nice, Gin! I really like these. Too bad the flowers are short lived -- they are so cool. Do they bloom but once per year?
