Wow Chococatte that Cymbidium of yours would go on my list of non-PC orchids if I had such a list or cared in the least about political correctness.

Thanks for the add-ons all. I'll compile them in the next couple days.

Hehe, funny you should mention that chid. I found a picture of it online and fell in love. I don't grow it but I will someday.

I don't really have enough orchids to post a good favorites list, but of the ones I have now:

Slc. Jewel Box 'Dark Waters'-relatively compact, a real survivor (mine had no viable roots when I got it ),and drop dead gorgeous red flowers you could drown in.

Paph. 'Macabre'-compact, beautiful leaves, and a darkly enchanting black flower with purple stripes that glow when backlit.

Maxillaria tenuifolia-easy, fast-growing, unique "climbing" growth habit, and mouthwatering coconut scent from intriguing flowers.

I also have an extensive wishlist (who doesn't? ), but I'll save that for another time or another thread.

Default Paph for me!

A Paphiopedilum would rank # 1 with me, like this Paph. Ho Chi Minh. Flowers are beautiful and leaves are nicely marked.

I second all those who mentioned Laelia purpurata, Psychopsis and Phragmipedium bessae. Lovely. Personally, I could never part with my Dendrobium Dawn Maree. Statuesque and longlasting, the flowers are a perfect combination of pearly white and hot vermilion. Yum. Oh, and Blc. Greenwich is nothing to be sniffed at. The scent is breathtaking!

Placed some new items on the "official" list. Among them you will find the craziest Dendrobium around, Den. spectabile. Can't wait for mine to bloom so I can try to breed some bright colored Dendrobiums with it.

After this weekend's orchid show, I have two more plants for the list. Phal. violacea var. coerulea and Gongora tricolor. However, I don't know which alliance Gongora fits into. A little help please.
Krull Smith has the Phal. violacea var. coerulea for sale for $75 bucks. That seems expensive until you see the pictures. http://www.krullsmith.com/p-93-phal-...-coerulea.aspx
