Hi Matt, these plants are all doing well thank you. They have grown well and all have flowered except the Tolumnia velutinum. The Tolumnia has grown the most and I believe it is close to flowering, not sure. It has a lot of new growths and three growths that look more like long spikes to me. I guess weíll see eventually.

The two Schoenorchis have flowered though not as profusely as my fragrans, that little one is a bloom machine!

The Trichoglottis triflora has new growth/fans and it was in flower when I received it, it has flowered twice more with such cute, tiny flowers.

I recently purchased plants at a local orchid show, two of these are new to me, and Iím growing them with my Neos. I hope I donít kill them. They are Holcoglossum Nujiangense from China, it looks like a tiny Neofinetia, and Cleisostoma arietinum from SE Asia, it is an odd looking plant. I like finding plants that Iíve never grown before and orchid shows are a great place for this!

As for Christmas, itís hard to believe isnít it! This year has flown by. I finally have my outdoor plants, non orchid, inside just before the frost arrived. Iím not ready for snow yet though:/

Nice collection! I never could keep Tolumnias.
