I'm surprised you know who Justin Bieber is...
I hear that Dale covets Justin's hair, Pook. He wants his bangs to swing across his forehead, too.
Ladies, please. The hair on that mop-head is an indication of poor personal hygiene and grooming skills. And it's Floozo that's collecting the Bieber stuff. The pencil case is just what he admits.
It's a slime mold, and not an orchid!
I'm underwhelmed. If you really like the genus it's probably OK in a kiss-your-sister sort of way. Flowers have been like this for a week, so they're 'open'.
Assuming the pictures at IOSPE are correct (and I usually do) this doesn't look very close to Eria (or Chonchidium) muscicola. Perhaps the genus is correct though, whichever you happen to prefer. If you're not happy with it I'm sure we could find a new home for it.
so it is now not Eria muscicola... but Porpax
It's neat, whatever it is!
Another look at IOSPE and it seems species of Porpax do have flowers of this general shape and color, including Porpax elwesii, but shorter spikes and with leaves at the time of flowering. Porpax probably, elwesii maybe not.
I would grow it for the plant only. The blooms are just the icing on the p'bulbs. Really cool.
I will call off the happy dance by Tom-PA then...
Where is Tom-PA? Did someone piss him off?
