    Here are a bunch of orchids in bloom today. These are unposed and in situ in the greenhouse. No particular order. I hope you enjoy them.

    I kept the photos small so they hopefully won't make this post too slow to load.

    I got my piece from John Klinger and the tag just says 'Stelis species'.

    Kelly,
    What a great selection of spring bloomers, wish I could ID them all, a few I know. What is the tiny little one in your hand with, I guess live moss around it, looks like something you could find if you got down on your belly and looked at mosses in a wood or meadow. I checked it is the last one of your pictures.

    Thank you, Anita. The little one (last photo) is a Stelis sp. Those flowers are incredibly tiny.

    Lot of plants blooming in your greenhouse. Very beautiful!
    Love your Scaphosepalums! What is the name of the yellow one? (Second one)

    Thank you, everyone.

    Weeand, that yellow Scaphosepalum is breve. It is a highly variable species in both form and color. This photo makes it look too green because it was taken under foliage in the greenhouse and I didn't try to correct colors on any of these.

    These aren't really uncommon anymore. They are frequently on EBay and I'm sure many vendors have them. My original one came from SLO Orchids probably 6-7 years ago.

    Yes, you have a nice diversity of species!

    Kelly, is that second photo Coelogyne incrassata? I have seen photos of that one before and have been an admirer of it - the flowers contrast the dark leaves nicely. Is it a very big plant?

    I also think I might have gotten a division of that Stelis sp. from you. I see what looks like the start of a spike on one of my plant's leaves; hopefully I can get some close-up photos of its flowers if that is the case!

    Hi, Shaun.
    The Coelogyne came from Andy's Orchids labelled as C. monilirachis but Andy told me then that he wasn't convinced it was named correctly. I have done a little reading on this section and believe it to be C. kelamensis. Here is a link to an older post I made on this.
    This plant has been in bloom almost constantly and has done very well in my conditions. As for size, it is in a 6" basket as seen in the linked post.

    On the Stelis, yes, I believe it is the same plant. I have 2 plants that are both labelled Stelis sp and I think they are the same species. As you can see in the photo this one was just starting to open but with lots of tight buds. I look forward to your photos of it. With your close-up skills they will be wonderful.
