    Wow...would like to see this in person! I wouldn’t dare touch one though as it would die within hours in my greenhouse!

    That is amazing. Love it.

    I know it's not optimum but have you tried a selfing? Some Tolumnias will self.

    No, but I've sent pollen out. Not too many people have this species so choices are limited.

    That is grown so well. I'd also love to see that in person.

    I have been looking back at this orchid since it was posted the first time. It is just fantastic!
