    I have this Schoenorchis and I asking around and one specialist for Vietnamese orchids Prof. Leonid V. Averyanov and he told me that is Schoenorchis seidenfadenii but if I do cross check on internet I found nothing match. Do any one have any idea about this species. It blooming now.

    I'd like to know what it is; I just acquired a piece of a plant that is vegetatively identical.

    I have heard that there is an new, very small, Schoenorchis from Vietnam. It was called Sch. pygmaea, but don't know that that is a valid name. I'm pretty sure that what was being sold at Redlands is the same as what I had seen pictures of. Very cool.

    Thanks for updating this thread, Jacob! I've seen a few of these in person, and I have to say that it exhibits one of the nicest growth habits I've seen in an orchid.

    For me the best perk of moderator status is helping get thread titles fixed, species spelling corrected and such.

    I agree, this is a really striking and highly attractive species. My plant of scolopendria grew fine in my warm vivarium but refused to flower. Whether it was the 100% unnatural light (400w MH lamp, no sunlight) or the lack of cooling off below 17°C at night, I don't know, but since I moved it to my intermediate outdoor greenhouse 4-5 months ago, it has flower buds for the first time!

    I have a plant that looks very similar to this that I purchased from Andy's about 2 years ago. It is tagged as Schoenorchis sp. 'red' (China). It is in bud now so I will post it when it blooms. I am growing mine very bright to the point where it has a red tinge. So far the spikes (3) are crimson. Though tiny it has probably tripled in size in the 2 years.

    It might be okay in this case because he was asking for ID and I agree your findings, however changing title or species name without the consent of the thread starter is not a good practice as you did to few other threads(mine and others). IMO, to maintain the integrity of any thread or post, moderators should not change or delete any of the contents without thread starter's consent(if the contents are not offensive or violations of forum rules). The starter of the thread may not be an experts or Mr. know-it-all so you called them on one of your posts, but you are no taxonomist either.

    You always can express your opinions and post you findings on the thread, but deleting or changing contents of other people's thread or post is not what I would do if I were a mod.

    Hi Tom,

    Please bring up any issues with any staff actions with me personally and lets not get this thread off track any further than it has at this point. :)
