DirtyCoconuts, WaterWitchin thank you
WaterWitchin, how old is your psychopsis? My psychopsis grows 1 bulb a year, and this bulb grows a new peduncle. And how do you grow it?

A beautiful little species - floriferous! The leaves are also so attractive, the contrast dramatic. What is the yellow Lepanthes (I think it's Lepanthes) in front of the L. barbelifera?

The Psychopsis Mendenhall 'Hildos' was gifted to me in February 2018. It had two bulbs, with a third just commencing. I moved it to semi-hydro. It's now starting on its fourth pbulb if I remember correctly. The old original pbulb is gone, along with half of one leaf of the second oldest pbulb (grasshopper attack on the former, and latter too much sun attack). It's grown a pbulb approximately once a year. No spikes yet.

The Psych. Mariposa same friend sold me for I think $20, in February 2020. It has three mature pbulbs, one just getting started since I started growing it, and came with a spike about 6" long. I moved it to semi-hydro about a week after I got it. Now the spike is about 16-18" long, and at end of spike almost looks like a little leaf at the end. Have no idea whether that's good or bad.

And I'm just LOVING the spotty little leaves on that Lepanthes barbelifera. If I were into little orchids, I'd grow it just for the leaves and not care too much if it didn't bloom.

Speaking of which... I'm still loving the white/purple ghosts a page or so back...The ones wearing little ball caps? I've had to come back several times to look at them.

Psychopsis Mendenhall 'Hildos' is a very interesting and beautiful hybrid. I am sure that as he grows a new bulb, he will produce a spike in winter and begin to bloom by next summer.
Psych. Mariposa is my favorite If there is a micro-leaf at the end of the spike, then this is probably a bract. But sometimes it can be baby. If it is a flower, then it will bloom in about a month Blossom will be revolving for about 2-3 years

Those white / purple ghosts are microscopic bloodthirsty water predators. This is Utricularia pubescens. In the roots there are trapping vesicles, traps that are usually caught and eaten by Daphnia.

the evolution of that color is beautiful and awe inspiring...like the almighty was slowly adjusting the color saturation on his heavenly TV (from the 60s/70s)

just awesome
