Iím sure I forgot a few, and I gave my Scaphosepalum itís own thread, but here are some of my little ones that have bloomed over the last couple of months. Enjoy!


A very young Dendrobium peguanum. Nice, long lasting flowers on this little thing









Dendrobium bellatulum. A terrible grower in my conditions but at least I got a couple of blooms out of it





The forever in bud Haerella retrocalla





Big flush of blooms on my Maxillaria variabilis. Was lucky to have some cold bright weather while the buds developed so it bloomed out nice and dark







An adorable Lepanthopsis astrophora. Love those tiny star shaped flowers







Lone bloom on my Maxillaria sophronitis (or what ever itís called now...). I do think I see more buds developing, though. Fingers crossed. The color on this flower is unbelievable





Mediocalcar decoratum. Only about a dozen blooms this year but, man, this is a cute one





Sophronitis cernua. Still only getting two flowers per spike on this young plant, hoping for more next year









Isabelia (Neolauchea) virginalis, first time bloomer and it does surprisingly well in my climate. I love the basket weaving on this one







Isabelia (Neolauchea) pulchella. Another one thatís doing surprisingly well in my conditions. Only 9 flowers, none open at the same time (*sigh) but Iím still trying to figure out the best lighting







Promenaea riograndensis. This is a newish one but so far so good. I really like the foliage that all of the Promenaeas have







Not entirely sure what this one is. It was sold to me as a Hexisea bidentata but I have my doubts. Cool growth habit though, it climbs and creeps and grows in all directions so you can get a nice big clump in so time

the coloring on the Maxillaria variabilis and Lepanthopsis astrophora is especially eye-catching.

That is some great winter cheer! Nicely grown & photographed.

Your Lepanthopsis astrophora and Sophronitis ceruna are truly stunning.

Thank you all! The pics are just on the ol IPhone and I use one of those clip on macro lenses for the closeups. Not fancy, not the best, but it works pretty well if I can keep my hand steady. I would like to get a proper macro lens for my Cannon eventually for those crystal clear shots

Well done! I love the shots where you can see the pot with a hand for scale and it is mind bending to see the size
