    Love the color of the blooms, but especially love the first photo. The perspective is really cool!

    Cheers,

    Default Love them!

    I love the Vuyls...easier to grow than Miltoniopsis but just as beautiful in my opinion. Nice buy!

    Connie,

    Vuylstekeara is a trigeneric cross of Cochlioda (snail orchids), Miltonia (or Miltoniopsis), and Odontoglossum. They are cool/intermediate growers and like to be kept somewhat moist. This artifical (man-made) genus was named after the famous hybridizer, C. Vuylsteke of Belgium.
