Thanks for the appreciation y'all!

To be honest I have very little merit, the Mediterranean weather does all the heavy lifting for me.
Some water, some MSU ferts and everything grows like weeds!

DC - I'm sure a Phal violacea or bellina would be more than thriving in South Florida. Juste make sure there's no iguana rain on it.

Roberta - Between you and me, the one I'm looking forward to seeing bloom is Hygrochilus parishii!

realoldbeachbum - That's what I'm thinking when seeing other people's setups I'm lucky enough to have some nice retailers and growers not too far away, it's helpful to check plants in person rather than blindly ordering online. I'm really hoping that exhibitions will take place this year.

Best of wishes on that one... it's a terrific species. (Mine is still blooming - down to a few flowers but then it started blooming a full two months ago... It may not grow fast, but it seems to be a root machine, a good sign for the future)

Phalaenopsis violacea alba, at last. 3 spikes this year, I'm expecting quite a show in a few weeks.

The Paph labelled as gratrixianum is mis-labelled. It is actually a hybrid (Paph Leeanum = [insigne x spicerianum]).

Thanks for the correction Kim, the label indeed seemed off. It now has a proper identification!
