    Good to know about the Acopera genus name now, thanks.


    You missed it by one week. Yes, not in the cabinet. I cut the dead flowers off and moved it to my other terrarium. The flowers are amazing, but short-lived. I was hoping to bring it in spike to this month's NECPS meeting. I also have a, what used to G. rufescens, orchid that should bloom this summer.

    Love Gongora! Had one for a number of years. Will have to try another one day.

    How's the fragrance on that one, Dave?

    Subrosa, to the best of my knowledge it is still Gongora. I know Jay's has it listed as such. Acropera is listed as a junior synonym.

    The fragrance reminds me a bit of allspice and clove; it fills the room, even behind glass. I get a bunch of co-workers who stop by my office just for the fragrance. It is my favorite orchid.

    If you ever get a backbulb to spare..........
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
