    That is lovely, kathi. I have tried to grow mine inside, but it's just too dry for them ( especially with the dry spell we've been having ) But...I can look at and admire yours...Betty

    I love these white twinkles...I got one a while back under the assumption that it was white. Planted it in a depression on a piece of driftwood. When it bloomed I discovered that the thing was the yellow form, which I am not to fond of. I have recently gotten a twinkle hybrid that is in fact white. I think I may just rip the yellow thing out and put the white hybrid in!

    Beautiful. I like all the Twinkles, the whites, the pinks and the yellows.Unfortunately my pink and yellow ones have died, I suspect from being grown too dry, but my white, that I got later is doing fine in sphagnum, which is kept moist all the time. It has 4 spikes out now.

    Nice shots, especially the closeups !

    Really a beautiful orchid Kathi! I wish I had better luck with the tiny orchids like this. They seem to dry up too fast in my greenhouse and never do well. Yours is lovely.

    Cheers,

    Well, since my problem is an urge to over-water, orchids that dry out quickly are actually best for me, I think.

    I love the miniature ones, too, Kathi. I have limited room, as everything has to fit indoors to protect them from the desert sun, heat and dryness. I can have more minis than large plants.

    Yours are beautiful.
