Tried writing LOC again. I’ll see if they get back to me. If not, Orchidweb and Botanica seem to also have the plant I want. That said, the bloom photos on their listing don’t quite look the way I...

That is true. I forgot about the cucullatum. I could also use a pseudofilicornu or scottianum maybe. I don’t know how I feel about the ramosum and those other spidery ones like the germinyanum....

A few Cattleyas and an Angraecum

Hello all,

Here is a few of some of the blooms I’ve had this month.

I am concerned about the big red flower as it has some issues. I think I’ll probably have to virus test it. I’ve highlighted...

I couldn’t be certain, but based on the look of it, it really looks like a Den. nobile hybrid (similar to the kind you’d get from Yamamoto orchids).

I agree with Estación. The fact that it is a real hole all the way through rather than just a spot makes me think something took a bite out of it like an insect or snail.

Could this picture be accurate?

I really like the flower in the picture but was wondering if there was any chance it is actually digbyana x luteola.
