    I liberated this one from the flower market this morning.

    It stood right next to a plastic bag full of ampullarias freshly ripped out of the jungle (which the vendor was proud to point out)

    Now, what could it be?

    Sucks about the ampullarias. I wish Neps were cheaper here. Looks to me like a hybrid of some sort.

    I paid the equivalent of twenty bucks US for this hybrid. Not exactly cheap, compared with Germany [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    But I guess you can't have it all - be able to grow them outside AND get them on the cheap...

    What IS cheap here, though, are the orchids. Holy Moly! Check out this three-foot odontoglossum.

    Cost me three bucks US at the same flower market (and the farther south you travel in Taiwan, the cheaper the orchids get - at the southern tip of the island, said odontoglossum would only set you back a buck and a half.)

    Oh, and while we're at it, can anybody ID this odontoglossum species? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
