    This would be like posting a tray of Nepenthes that aren't pitchering.

    I've never been much for orchids, so I can't tell #1 from #41.

    I didn't know you had this many. I was under the impression you'd only gotten 4 or 5... Amazing your humidity allows you to do this. These things shrivel into beans in the course of one day in my house's humidity.

    The only ones I can take a decent stab at are the ones blooming:

    40) Masdevallia limax
    41) Dendrobium cuthbertsonii

    Without blooms so many species within families look alike, I might be able to guess the right genus on some of them! LOL

    What are the unlabeled mounts?

    hahaa. you must have answered before i updated...you mean 47 & 48? correct!

    as for humidity, you've probably noticed that i've grouped the mounts tightly together...this allows the relative humidity to be greater than if i had spread them all out on the grid. the more humid loving plants are near the bottom of the grid while the ones that prefer drier conditions are located near the top.

    the unlabeled mounts (from top rows to bottom rows) are:
    Lepanthopis astrophora 'stalky' (below 11)
    Sophronitis cernua (right of 22)
    unknown Bulbophyllum (between 28/29)
    Lepanthes camprimulgus (below the unknown Bulbophyllum(
    Sophronitis rosea/wittigiana (right of 32)
    Porroglossum teaguei (between 37/38)
    Lepanthes telipogoniflora (between 39/41)
    and Trisetella hoeijeri (between 47-48)

    Yes, #47 & 48 now!

    So how does the Tristella hoeijeri grow & bloom for you? I've wanted to grow this one for some time, I love the flying seagull shaped blooms (at least to me they resemble seagulls in a seascape paining).
