    Hi everyone,
    Does anybody know where I can find a top-notch Psychopsis papilio and/or versteegiana, krameriana? I'd eventually like all of the species in the genus. I saw them available at Mount Prospect orchids, but her reviews are kinda bad and the plants are expensive.

    I'm also looking for leafless orchids, especially Microcoelia corallina, gilpinae and Dendrophylaxes barretiae and varius. I'm aware that Malala has some microcoelia available. I'll be ordering hers next group order... I've heard of a Jim Watts, who is something of a specialist on leafless orchids, so if anyone can put me in contact with him that would be great too. I realize I'm late to the Microcoelia party, which apparently happened back in '03. Nobody told me!

    If anyone is aware of international nurseries, perhaps in the Carribean, which have the less-widely grown species of Dendrophylax, namely varius and barretiae, I'll import them.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
    Ty

    Hi, I bought one at Plantio La Orquidea (www.plantiolaorquidea.com) in Sarasota. I also found several Floridian vendors offering them at the Miami Orchid Show 2 weeks ago. Let me look into my notes and I will get more information for you

    Natt's Orchids in Chicago had some nice leafless orchids last month... Give them a call.

    Love Natts. My first orchids were from them.

    check ebay today. Botanica has a nice one up. I tried to include the link, but it wouldn't show.

    I followed up at Natt's and they have some very nice chiloschistas. Thanks for the lead!

    I'm a big fan of botanica.

    There's an obscure microcoelia on eBay right now.

    If you are still looking for Psychopsis, I bought a Psychopsys Mariposa from Pelican Orchids at the Tamiami Orchid Show. They were at the Fort Lauderdale show today, and they still have more plants available. Youmay find them on the web as http://www.orchidsamore.com/
