I was sold this plant ten-plus years ago by Helene Gendel of Briggs Hill Orchids, and it was a NoID Pleurothallis which I was told resembles P. restrepioides but is NOT restrepioides. If any of you recognizes this species, please let me know what you think it is. Note that this differs from restrepioides by the narrow, hairy petals and the cupped labellum.
Platystele stenostachya, without a doubt the tiniest of all the orchids I grow. The bloom shown here is about 1/16th of an inch tall!
Such a wonderful palette of reds, oranges and yellows! Purchased from and bred by Hausermann’s Orchids in Chicago.
These bold red Cattleyas were something that had barely been imagined when I was a teenager, let alone actualized. Now, the red Cattleyas are abundant and they are glorious. This is a relatively new hybrid, BLC. Chian Lin ‘Shin Shy’ AM/AOS.
