We've got a blizzard blowing outside today but the orchids inside are happy! I got these two at the orchid show a couple weeks ago and have opened since coming home with me.
Masdevallia limax the bloom looks like an orange utic trap to me it never opens more than this small bulb with three "antennae"
Here is Phalaenopsis philippinensis - I liked the stripey leaves but didn't know the bloom would be so common and white sigh....
Some Phals have really cool flowers yellow with red heiroglyphs on them. I will put this one up for trade since I only want really stunning species, this one is nice and a true species of the more common looking "moth orchids". This one is small only about 5-6" across and blooming size (about 8-10" stalk)
Hope you can see the pics, I'm on my laptop and they look washed out to me but I probly won't have my desktop back up for another week or so. I start installing my new floors on Thursday then onto the new vivariums!
