    Nice plants. Your nepenthes look really happy. Are you growing them in pure LF sphagnum or is that a top dressing? The orchids look great, too. Is that a cattleya claesiana between the N. truncata and N. ventricosa? If so, has it ever bloomed for you? I see you have a rhyncostilis. I had the same one growing in my lowland setup for a number of years. I really liked it but it got too big, and I needed the room for other things. The flowers have the most evocative scent, just a bit odd and sort of fresh and exciting.

    Nepguy--I grow most of my neps in a mix of coco husk chips, perlite, and coarse orchid bark. The sphag is a topdressing. The orchid between the vent and truncata is a Lc. Love Knot, which is Laelia sincorana x Catt walkeriana. I've had it for a year, and it's constantly putting out new growths, but it refuses to bloom for me. The Rhyncostylis is one of my favorites. Your description about the scent is completely correct: it's nice and lemony from a distance, then the closer you get, you start getting this funky smell too. I have an Aerides x Rhyncostylis getting ready to bloom that's like a larger version of this one. I'll post pic of it if I'm home when it blooms.
