    Smile Paph Psyche (bellatulum x niveum) at RVO

    I missed the first bloom on this slipper orchid, but got a photo or three of the second one. It has two spikes and two more buds. Cute little orchid.

    Those are so nice, Bruce. The foliage is beautiful, too. I can see why it's good for your psyche to be around such magnificent plants.

    Love this one! Wish I could get mine to bloom. Have had it for three years and it has put out a couple new leafs but that is all. Yours is beautiful, Bruce.

    I like this very much Bruce. I also like the fact that this is a 'warm' grower. Lots of water I assume? AL

    I actually have to grow this one near the koolcell. It never should dry completely out either.

    I love the coloring on this one, it's like someone flicked it with a toothbrush covered in paint
