the lower level gets a lot of sunshine, now shaded a bit by the cloth. i have Ansellia africana var. gigantea Nilotica "Waunakee" which i hope will do better now that it has some shading. last winter it lived, but lost some leaves. it is still a young plant. hopefully i have saved it. it will eventually get some pot mates too, perhaps a laelia.
the next pot up has had the Myrmecophila (Shomburgkia) tibicinis for 2 years, and it is another of the unfortunate guinea pigs that i used to test the strength of the sun before the shade cloth. it is recovering though. one piece has firmly rooted into the tree fern pot. i recently added the Dendrobium tetragonum while in bud. i have had it a while, but just planted it into the tree recently.

this Amaryllis papilio bulb has been in the tree for 3 years. it has more moss in it's pot, which has been bad for adding anything in with it. i am trying a Tolumnia now, Ester Oka "Lake View". it came in spike.
the Brassavola nodosa is a new addition. the Oncidium (Trichocentrum?) cebolleta has been there a while now. i might order another as it is so small. also recently added is small (but possibly budding) Dendrobium aphyllum (also noted as pierardii).
