    Thanks for the pics. It is beautiful. I have also been bitten by the Psychopsis bug. I bought a kamerian X versteegiana about a year ago at a meeting. I didn't know what it was but I bought it because the foliage was so interesting. Since then I have add 5 more. They are so fascinating.

    Do you grow them in a greenhouse? I have mine on a shelf with light only on the plant. I have a desk lamp with a CFL light pointed at the blooms (not very much light). I'm not sure my lighting is correct, but until I can come up with a better solution, it will remain like that.

    You just can't go wrong with one of these--everyone should have one. They are so strangely beautiful--definite conversation starters. Yours is very nice! And I love the upclose photo!
