    I can't take credit for these blooms as the plant was in spike when I purchased it from Deb aka Kitty at the Pacific Orchid Expo a few weeks ago. Love the flowers of this species. :)

    Nice. I've had struggles with this one in the past but I think I have a handle on how to grow it now.

    love the sweet scent also. these did much better for me mounted, they hung on a west wall facing east.
    It was so nice to meet you Reyna, hope you really enjoyed your first POE, was it everything you hoped?

    I'll defer to Deb on culture as she has grown this plant. And yes, I enjoyed the POE immensely. It was a great show, but even better I got some time to really chat with other orchid lovers, angraecoids in particular. I got to meet Jacob in person and see his incredible grow space. I got to meet you as well -- and chat quickly between customers. :) So yes, I very much enjoyed it.

    Have any of you seen Leon's cross of Oeoniella polystachys x Cyrtorchis arcuata? It looks like a large polystachys.

    Very nice! I had one for some years but ended up killing it. Been wanting to replace it for a while now. Well done!

    It was a pleasure having you over, Reyna and it was great to meet you.

    This is a great species and quite underrated in my opinion. The fragrance is nice and when viewed at close range, the flowers are especially lovely. The pinched labellum is unlike anything except for the crazy, wonderful lip of the super-rare Ambrella longituba.
