    Philippe, can I just say that your grow area looks super clean!!!

    Beautiful buds.

    2. is this from the parvisepalum group?

    1. does this plant have a 'brain' for a pouch?

    Philippe I think, species 1 may be of P. bougainvilleanum .
    Species 2 may be Cochlopetalum Vic. reginae

    yes it is very clean because I have very few orchids. I am gradually stoping the cultivation of orchids !

    species 1 : brain is the good word
    species 2 yes its from the parvisepalum group

    The first one is P. venustum alba ( measuresianum )
    The second one looks like P.hangianum

    Brain is not what I usually call #1 I usually compare the look of it's pouch to a varicosed old man's body part Looks like you have the album form which used to be know as var. measuresianum.

    I am not going to try my guess at the second one.

    EDIT whoops...missed Roy's last post

    Thankyou Philippe, the first one was easy. The plant gave the second one away, plus the large bud.
