    I like these better than paphs and wish I had the space for them (my large plants tend to be the odont/oncid intergenerics)..

    I had one that bloomed a couple of times and then it tried to eat some small seedlings, so I had to get rid of it. *snicker*

    Thanks Steve! And yes, it is an Encylclia to the right of the bloom. I guess it wanted to share in the limelight.
