    Yeah, what she said, I guess.
    Wait, maybe not what she said. What did she say?


    Nice Bulbophyllums, Jon.

    WOW Jon they are really nice Jon....I love all minis but love bulbo minis even more :D

    I especially love the Bulbophyllum aestivale and the Bulbophyllum species, possibly minutulum. Should you ever find yourself dividing these I would love to be added to the list :D

    Thanks friends!

    I like mini bulbos. I don't drive a big truck. Draw your own conclusions.

    Nice! I was going to photograph mine tomorrow. Today was all about minis.

    Si.

    Thanks Tom. I just got a division off of aestivale, but it's already found a new home. I think the other one needs to find a new home on cork. It isn't very fond of the manzanita. If a piece falls off, I'll let you know. The bulbs are smaller than minutissimum.

    Really lovely photos, Jon. I really do enjoy seeing photos of the cool growing plants
    that are so small that I couldn't see them if I had them growing in my gh. They
    really are little jewels!

    Marni, thank you for the translation. That makes more sense then what I thought she was saying.

    That's why I love this forum, Angela. I see so much stuff that I can't (or don't) grow.

    I would call that psychoon, Piotr. The flowers on my plant are a little old, so they are not necessarily completely representative of the species. Also, the slight variations could be do to culture.

    I like the minis too. Had a bad experience at the show in April. The AOS judge said right away, 'Where are the orchids."
