BD - you think they'd be kind enough to loan me that amazing plant for a starter That's an amazing specimin! Thanks for the pic.... that's what we call motivation!
    I think everyone at the show wanted to take that one home with them. The awesome thing was that there were two containers of those blooms. It was wonderful to see in person.

    Cheers,

    Oh, those are wonderful! Such a great plant. I love grass pinks too.
    For years there was a wonderful yellow ladies slipper that grew on a steep, boggy hillside on the side of the road going to Cades Cove in the Smokies. You could always count on beautiful blooms in that same spot year after year. It was spectacular! If you stood in the ditch on the side of the road the blooms were just at head level. Perfect for great photos. But the plant is no longer there; it was poached about five years ago. So many of the beautiful orchids and other wildflowers there and elsewhere have been lost to poaching. It just burns me up. A wonderful night blooming epidendrum had been yanked from a tree in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in south FL and hidden beneath the boardwalk for later collection. Thankfully, the park rangers and volunteers found the plant and placed it in another tree away from the boardwalk where it is now thriving. Why do people do that? It's so senseless when there are so many orchids to be had legally, and they are stealing something that belongs to everyone. OK, off my soapbox.
    Thanks for sharing your photos, Bruce.

    We only have one native cyp. and it has been poached out. One remains under 24 hour protection at a secret location. However, a re introduction has started so hopefully we will all be able to enjoy these wonderful blooms in future years

    That's such a shame. I sure hope the reintroduction is successful.

    I totally agree with you on that. I've never really seen orchids in the wild, but when there is something in the wild that all the people in the area know about, they should enjoy it just how nature intended. Usually they are the most stunning.

    I'm sure it is, Diane. This species has a HUGE distribution and quite a few varieties.

    It sure is a beautiful, well-grown specimen
