    Wink Psychopsis krameriana in bloom

    Been wanting to get a psychopsis for some time but the price of one has always been out of the price range I've set . But during my recent holidays I found 2 vendors with blooming Psychopsis papillio and krameriana for sale. The first vendor quoted an outrageous price but the second vendor, a very nice lady was willing to sell one of her plants with an unopened bud on a secondary spike (the main spike had been broken)for US $15 (Malaysian Ringgit 48). Compare that with the price of the first vendor $50!! The flower opened a week after I came back and I am very pleased with it. Actually I ended up buying 8 other mini catts,with flowers, from this lady at $5 each.

    I just love these. I recently bought one with 2 spikes. Just waiting for the buds to develop. Thanks for sharing yours in the mean time. Now I am just that more anxious.

    It is quite a large plant with 4 pseudobulbs with all the leaves intact. The smallest leaf is 2 1/2 in long, 2 other leaves measuring 7 in each and the largest leaf is 10 in long by 3 in wide. I think I got a good bargain on this one. You can be sure I'll be going back to this vendor when I next go the Cameron Highlands. She has a good selection of cattelyas and what look like possible warm tolerant cybidiums.

    Thanks everyone for looking in.
