    Cirrhopetalum dentiferum (a/k/a Bulbophyllum dentiferum)
    Dendrobium kingianum
    Laelia briegeri
    Myrmecophilia thompsoniana (a/k/a Schomburgkia thompsoniana var minor)

    Here are four interesting orchid species that range from fairly common to pretty uncommon. Only the Cirrhopetalum has bloomed so far (it has those classic pinwheel blooms). The Dendrobium is a famous Australian species and this one probably needs another year before blooming. The Laelia is a rupicolous species (grows on rocks) and is a great companion for highland Neps. Rupicolous Laelia species stay small and this one should be ready to bloom. The Myrmecophilia is one of the ant orchids that host ant colonies in their pseudobulbs. It's still small and, no, it doesn't have any ants. None that I know of, anyway.

    This is a pretty diverse sampler and feel free to PM if if you'd be interested in a substitution. You can learn about each at http://www.orchidspecies.com. Bidding will start at $12 and I'll pay for shipping when the price passes $21.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.
