    Wow, that is beautiful! Didn't even realize Drags (edit: Dracs. Not a "Freudian slip", Paul, I promise) were so large (I suppose I am quite ignorant in regards to Orchidaceae). I also thought you had your finger poking through the flower in the first picture.. that would have been a bit bizarre.

    Very nice Paul! I grow a few Dracula, this one included, and find them very rewarding and prolific in producing flowers if you can provide cool temperatures.

    I have a real oddball here...I'm not even sure what it is, all I know is that it is a Bulbophyllum, it's a miniature, it was origionally collected from the wild somewhere in Indonesia, and that it appears to enjoy very cool temps. This is my first set of blooms on it, they are tiny and odorless.

    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Thank you sir. The bloom is, as I understand it, modest in size, at about 9" tip-to-tail. I've read that blooms can approach twice that size when well grown. Still, it is a larger flower than I expected for its first, and I am completely impressed by it. Its a crazy flower! And yes, I am on a "waiting list" for a plant of D. vampira!

    Curious, colorful little fellow! How tiny is "tiny"?
