    Amazing flowers, Paul! I wish I'll have the means to grow cool-growing species some day...

    DragonsEye, I love the foliage on that angraecum too!! Must try to find it some time.
    It is interesting how distantly related orchids can have foliage so similar. There is another dendrobium species I grow that has similar foliage, Dendrobium prostratum. It is basically a miniature version of Dendrobium leonis, same habit, same foliage, same flowers and even the fragrance is similar too, only it is much reduced in size. Here are some photos (but these are old photos.... taken last year)










    I tried crossing the two species several times, but each attempt failed. I have checked that both species are self-fertile, maybe it is incompatible chromosome number or something.

    The Den. leonis flower has opened





    It has a delicious vanilla smell. Some orchids have vanilla scent (Onc. Sharry Baby, Onc. Twinkle, etc.) but the overall smell is floral.
    The vanilla scent of Den. leonis is different. It's the culinary kind and the bloom smells absolutely edible, just like vanilla ice cream.

    Oh boy my first real orchid!
    This is the seemingly famous Lepanthes telipogoniflora.


    So tiny!



    This is where it lives now.


    Closer.


    How I prop the mount.

    Recently bought my first orchids at a local orchid show..
    Here's my Sharry baby (Oncidium 'Sharry baby')..Sadly most of the blooms dropped from the shock of being brought home..

    Chocolate dreams

    One of my Twinkle's buds (Oncidium "Twinkle 'Pinkie'")..It has 4 flower spikes.

    My paphiopedilum (Paph. Hilo Ruby "Double diamond" x Hsinying "Glory #2") is sending up what I believe is a flower spike.

    Sure! I'm a bit awkward when it comes to plant photos (as opposed to macros), but I'll try...Try to ignore my odd background ; had to move it for good light.

    Here's more of the foliage ;

    I've only really found one or two other growers of this hybrid on the internet, and one of them believes that they might have a polyploid..The leaves are obviously darker and glossier than most maudiae types, so maybe that has to do with it.
