I have a possibly interesting idea for a project, perhaps for a future one.
The core idea is growing native orchids.

Each participant should grow a native orchid that has a similar growing pattern (e.g. Grow-Rest/Dormancy-Flower).

Each participant should provide informatiom about their climate (such as average yearly weather) and their own growing conditions, so other members can compare the conditions of the orchid's native habitat's conditions and the grower's growing conditions.

I have spotted one large problem in this idea, though, because when it is fall on one side of the Earth, where some native species are going dormant, it is spring on the other side, where some native species are waking up.

Generally it's ok if you already have the plant, if it is a recent addition. If you've had one a while you can buy another, or share culture notes on the existing one, but can't claim the "first to bloom" crown.

---------- Post added at 05:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:15 PM ----------

Having gone through the list checking size, general temp requirements and did my best to check availability (focused on the US and EU, and for US I checked at places I know are good, like Hauserman, J&L, Andy's, H&R, and Orchidweb). I was really surprised by haw many plants are out of stock at Andy's!

OUT of contention are listed below. If you want to try to find these (at reputable nurseries), go ahead, and let me know if you have more luck. Otherwise they're out, but we have enough to vote from, though it's a short list!
  • Laelia vasconcelosiana (both Laelias are hard to find, and last project was a rupiculous laelia project)
  • Laelia harpophylla
  • Phal parishii / Phal lobbii (hard to find in US)
  • Dendrobium pachyphyllum (hard to find in EU)
  • Nervilia plicata (hard to find)
  • Eria ornata(hard to find)
  • Sarcochilus, both species (hard to find in US)
  • Sophronitis coccinea (cool grower)
  • Bulbophyllum lobbii (hard to find in US)
  • Bulbophyllum macranthum (warm/hot grower)
  • Bulbophyllum medusae (warm/hot grower)
  • Dendrobium bellatulum (favoring cool, hard to find in EU)
  • Dendrobium eriaeflorum (favoring cool, hard to find in EU)
  • Bulbophyllum lobbii (hard to find in US)


Still in contention are below, and I will do a bit more checking but I think the poll will include these:
  • Mini Vanda (ex Ascocentrum) can be ampullceum, miniatum, pumilum, garayi...)
  • Dendrobium tannii or bracteosum
  • Bulbophyllum biflorum
  • Dendrobium unicum
Thanks for all the work Camille!

I think that your list would be a reasonable place to start a vote perhaps?

I went through the other candidates again today (it's my weekly day off) and could add back 1-2 of them, and also found 2 new ones to add to the list by working backwards off US vendors. I'm going out for a bit, but later today I can set up the poll for us to vote for the favorite!

At this point, better to wait until spring. It's getting too cold to order for many people. It was unfortunate that I was really busy at work when organizing the project and could never find time to finalize it...
