I've gotten most of my orchids from my Gramma as rescues after they're done flowering (her plant gets replaced with another flowering orchid for her window once it's done blooming, and the cycle continues). Some of them are too rotted to save by the time I get them, but this one just had a little baby! About a year after re-potting.

DragonsEye, that Psyg. pusilla is adorable! Does it keep blooming from the same spike? Speaking of micro-minis, here's one of my smallest flowers: Stelis microchila. It's hard to appreciate with the naked eye, but if you magnify it you see hairy sepals. The inflorescence is about an inch long.
Besides orchids that make you squint, I have a thing for Angraecoids. Here's Aeranthes grandiflora. The flowers are supposed to smell of butterscotch, but I think it smells more like very ripe (read: rotting) fruit.

B. Elizabeth Ann Buckleberry has put out 3 blooms this time but Echinolabium still hasn't bloomed in 2 years in spite of good growth...Any tips ?

My Bulbophyllum echinolabium took three+ years to start flowering. It has to reach a significant size to flower.

Thats gorgeous, Randy! I've always admired cornu-cervi. I should look into getting a plant.
