Welcome to the Orchid Board from someone born on the other side of the river (Fountain Hill, what was then St. Lukes). I still consider Bethlehem my home town, though.

You've brought the outdoors indoors. That's always been my idea of the way to decorate. As others have said, a beautiful space.

It's not unusual to have aeriel roots on Phals but that is a bunch. However, they all seem very happy and have healthy root tips. Your mix does look rather fine. Was that a Hyponex mix by any chance?

Here in MI my Doritus pulcherrima are spiking now. Actually started noticing them about two weeks ago. I usually get about 4-5 spikes/pot.

You've had it for a few years and it hasn't bloomed for you yet? A picture of the flower would definitely help identify it. The foliage is a lot wider than my pulcherrima.

It certainly looks healthy and large enough to bloom. What sort of exposure does it get and for how long? I assume that you have been fertilizing it periodically?

This is a riot of color. I particularly like the fact that the backside of the petals and sepals is a totally different color than the front.

The same bog, away from the quaking bog, also had Cyp. acaule, Cyp. reginae and Arethusa bulbosa. There may have been others, but those are the only ones I found and photographed (pre-digital days).
