    Took this pic yesterday. This plant has been in bloom for quite some time now and the pic is of the new spike.

    That's wonderful. The spotting on the pouch, and all the stripes. Very attractive!

    Thanks!

    I think the small blooms are quite elegant and you ought to get one. Get rid of your common Phal, Den hybrids and then you have more room for more Paphs and Phrags.

    You're terrible!
    Get rid!? Nice orchid conservationist you are! Hey, they have a new leaf and a new spike! I don't want to get rid of them! lol (well, sometimes the dend I do, but it doesn't "live" with the others anyway, it lives upstairs in a western window.)

    I've been thinking about this though...I think I have some room for future acquisitions. The phals easily can move to the other table in the room. It gets good eastern light, but not at this time of the year. So, I'm not sure they'd like it there until the sun is lower in the sky in the a.m. (fall-spring)

    Nice phrag. You'll get Heather to turn to the dark side yet. It is inevitable.

    I think she's getting there. She's concentrating on Paphs and Phrags only for now. Yay!!!!

    that's paphnut to you. paphhead doesn't convey the psychosis involved in growing these things. the dark side is inevitable. resistance is futile.
