    Another update! Some new stuff this time.

    The Reedy Creek Bog S. purpurea seedlings have finally started growing again, and they're back with a vengeance!

    So, has anyone had any experience with U. multifida? I'd like to know the best way to pollinate it.

    The N. naga will be a year old in April. They grow really fast compared to other seedlings.
    And to clarify, the D. adelae terrarium is 12" wide, so the plants aren't that big. I know it looks like they're huge, but it's a small terrarium.

    The largest one is maybe 4 inches across. It's all about staging in making things look bigger than they are.

    Thanks! I just got back from the Richmond Orchid Show. They had some spectacular displays, plants I've never heard of, some gigantic specimens (bigger than most of the people there!), and excellent vendors. So, like any plant enthusiast who tells themselves "just one" I walked out with two miniatures. I now have a Psygmorchis pusilla in bud (ultimate miniature) and a Sophronitis cernua. I almost walked out with another Paph, but I like variety. My girlfriend picked out a Cochleanthes 'Amazing', and a very healthy one at that. I'll post pics of them soon, and photos of the show orchids in the Orchid section.
