2019 orchid project - let's brainstorm some ideas!
 
So many people are wondering if a new project is going to start anytime soon, and recent attempts at starting one have led to not much.

So instead of proposing an idea and hoping people like it, I thought we could start differently: all interested people decide together one the type of project we'd like to do.

To get us started, I've created a poll with different general ideas for a project. Vote for your preferred type(s) and we'll take it from there!

We can also recycle ideas from project 'proposals' that never became projects.


---------------Plant suggestions -------------------
  • Laelia vasconcelosiana
  • Laelia harpophylla
  • Vanda ampullacea (ex Ascocentrum ampullaceum) or similar (A. miniatum, A. pumilum...)
  • Phal parishii / Phal lobbii
  • Nervilia plicata (terrestrial)
  • Dendrobium pachyphyllum
  • Eria ornata
  • Sarcochilus ceciliae
  • Sarcochilus hartmannii
  • Sophronitis coccinea (cool grower)
  • Dendrobium bellatulum
  • Dendrobium eriaeflorum
  • Dendrobium tannii or bracteosum (unclear if they are separate species, and in any case they're similar enough for our purposes)
  • Bulbophyllum biflorum
  • Bulbophyllum lobbii
  • Bulbophyllum macranthum
  • Bulbophyllum medusae
  • Dendrobium unicum

I would be interested in joining a project and can help out some as well!

So far it seems that a classic compact plant project is favored. Any suggestions for plants? Generally we try to stick to plants that grow well in intermediate temps, so that everyone has a faire shot of growing it successfully.

Laelia vasconcelosiana or Laelia harpophylla.

I'll edit my first post to include a running list of ideas, starting with this! :)

I was thinking of a small Vanda type, like Vanda (ex Ascocentrum) ampullacea or related.

Iíll think of more and add them.

But as a start:

Phal parishii

I'll add Phal lobbii next to it, they are so similar that either could be grown if this were to be the project plant.

Who is eligible to join?

I probably wont join but I'll help think of a few ideas.

A deciduous plant would be interesting but also not, because most are on a set flower-grow-dormancy cycle - but perhaps Nervilia plicata?

Some other ideas:
Dendrobium pachyphyllum
Eria ornata

would ascocentrum pumilum be related to the other vanda/ascocentrums you were thinking Camille? I would also be interested in on of those.

A sarchochilus type plant (e.g. sarchochilus cecilia) would be in the same realm.

sophronitis coccinea might be fun also.

If people are into dendrobiums the following might be fun:
Dendrobium bellatulum
Dendrobium eriaeflorum
Dendrobium tannii

You should definitely consider joining :biggrin:

My understanding is that the project is open to anyone (but I could be wrong lol).

i would be interested in growing one of the dendrobium species (compact/miniature obviously) but i am open to any genus really. also it might be better not to choose a pendant/usually mounted species...
