I think Sarcochilus falcatus sounds interesting as well. I have a lot of orchids, but for some reason always overlook Sarcochilus and do not own one!

Only my 2 cents on the Sarcochilus is that I have one I bought last year and it still looks just like it did when I got it. Reminds me of the Ameseilla Monticola, doesn't grow !

D. senile
Den. infundibulum
Amesiella monticola part 2 (recent project--for those who don't want to miss a moment of their plant's progress but are never around)
Cattleya or member of Pleurothallis group
Vanilla
Ascocentrum pumilum (another past project)
easy bulbophyllum
Sarcochilus falcatus
Soph. coccinea

How about I start a project properly in a new thread, and start an official sign up thread?

I now have plenty of free time to organize the project again this year. I handed in my dissertation a few weeks ago, and other than job hunting and preparing for the defense in 3 months, I don't have much to do.

Also, is there anyone in the US willing to pitch in and help? Usually it means helping research suggestions for availability/price, and calling vendors to check stocks. With the time difference it's not easy (or free) for me to make calls from Europe.

But they are hard to come by!

I was quite "gung ho" about sarcochilus last year and got one, and it still looks exactly like it did when I got it. Slow, slow, slow.
