    This is a first bloom for this Colombian species. Pardon the photos, I have been using a phone lately which I don’t feel substitutes for a proper camera (at least for me).

    Hi Bill... Last August, Chuck and I went down to Colombia to visit some friends of mine who run an Eco Tour Company, Sebastian Vieira and Luis Perez and to go to Medellin Orchid Show... Sebastian gave both of us some cutting of plants, one of them was this! It was an un-named species at the time... As you can see, the plant was named after the 2 that discovered this plant!!! I can not wait to see some of the other plants we got from them after they bloom!

    Dex, that is so cool! Someday I hope to go explore Colombia. In 2004 I did an eco tour with my cousin who opened a lodge on the Rio Cayapas, near the border with Colombia. Most of the exploring I did was at low elevations. I did see where a few Sobralia and Epidendrum on the drive from Quito. Since I was with a group, I was unable to visit Ecuagenera... Maybe next time!
