    Thanks.
    This species is not commonly available. For those who is looking for this great species, our Marni has this species available in flask at very reasonable price. I believe she can ship flask oversea now also. The seed grown plants should be a lot easier to grow IMO.

    And I do like last year's plant shot better:

    Paul, what most people including myself fall in love with this species and its sister species(N. hexaptera) at the first place is the flower color... It was special to me then when it was considered closely related to Laelia. Now, the DNA test has concluded that it belongs to the Pleurothallids and that makes it even more interesting/unique.
