:greenthumb: More great shots P.P.!..

Really like the Cyrtocidium " Midnight Ebony/ Ivory ", Pahpio. Tom S----omething.. < Can't make out the entire name >  ..Is the Paph. directly below the Neomoorea.. Paph. X  "Edward Marshall " is another nice Paphiopedilum too ..and the Variegated Dendrobium nobile- type in a couple shots..  ..Don't see that very often..

Cat. intermedia hybrid is pretty sweet too.  Have seen, ..and eventually want to find BrassoCat. Richard's Bonanza.  Nice flowers, and supposedly pretty tough.

Was hiking last week in a Remote Leeward valley and spotted these "wild" orchids growing in the ground.  Dug one of the purple ones up and planted it in the yard in shade like it was in the "bush".  Locally we call them "Philippine orchids.

20220310_101529.thumb.jpg.1b849edc71f04f820f6165a2bed63fc2.jpg

This one we call "Chinese Orchid".  Can't dig up the only one in the area so I gotta be on the lookout for more.

Nice finds!  Spathoglottis plicata, Phaius tankerviliae, and possibly Epidendrum rigidum.  I wonder how many other species have naturalized in Hawaii.  I'm pretty sure I saw a species of Vanda on the road to Hana as well as Spathoglottis.

Thanks Silas! I believe you are referring to that Paphio. Toni Semple? Funny how the name is clear on my original iPhone pic but fuzzy in the post.AE91D1B4-91A9-4DCD-B028-1B4FFCE2DA4D.thumb.jpeg.78048f50cae4513782892af78c32cfda.jpeg8A442931-C58E-4326-B94B-B3C1CBEEF945.thumb.jpeg.cdab8dac37aa820ae081faccf8186e6d.jpeg

Yes, that one really stood out to me as well. Hopefully you will find one and glad to hear they are tough.

Haha, Yes,  that is it..  Gotta love technology sometimes.. Take what looks like a perfect picture, then post it only to see specific details that looked clear are kind of out of focus..  You got the flowers though ( the most important part )

Most of the time there is no flower when they go on sale so I'm just getting lucky.  But then is there ever an ugly orchid?  LOL

This little gem blooms for me every winter/spring.  Blooms are tiny, approximately 1 inch across.

Leptotes bicolor is in bloom again.  Apparently the seeds from these were used as a Vanilla flavoring substitute in cooler climates at one time.  This species wants to be hung high so you can appreciate the pendant flowers.  Mine are currently hanging off a Chambeyronia houailou.  The C houailou leaflets are stiff and support the small metal hangers used on these stick mounted orchids which re relatively lightweight.

Thanks to everyone posting here! Beautiful flowers.

My favorite on my farm today is this one, another lost label.

Cindy,  Pretty sure this is  Dendrobium aphyllum.  Is sometimes lumped in w/ other, similar looking, cane- type Dendrobium like D primulinum / polyanthum though.

All I could guess was Dendrobium something.

I just heard from my former neighbor and she confirmed your identification as D. aphyllum. Amazing to even get orchid identification on PT!

After a low of 15°F this winter, my Dendrobium moniliforme is beginning to bloom.

Was it outside during that 15°F temperature?  If so that is pretty darn impressive cold tolerance.

I'm not sure if my ID is correct yet on the Vanda below, as I was expecting more of a blue tint rather than pink.  It's my first blooms on it after residing outside in my garden all winter, but definitely not below freezing like you get.  The three little flowers are somewhat tangled up, so hard to get a shot of an entire flower without some overlap.

Yes, it stayed outside all winter. Here’s a photo from a snow storm in January.

Send those photos to Andy, he should include them with his species description on his website.  Next time I am over at Andy's, I will be sure to look up Dendrobium moniliforme .

While at a local Charlotte County park, I spotted this little ground orchid species growing nestled under a smaller cluster of Sabal palmettos.  Can anyone ID this little guy?

Back in summer of 2021 I re-potted all of my orchids that had been on their own for a few years.  Two more blooming if if just a couple of flowers on each.  Little Green Apples and Pink Natasha

Some blasts from the past..  Various Dendrobium sp. from St. Petersburg's (FL ) Green Thumb Fest, 2014.  **All Dendrobium pictured are within the relatively cool / cold tolerant group of the Genus.


Dendrobium farmeri ..There is also a pink - flowering and solid " alba " form of the sp.

SAM_2339.thumb.JPG.ead5656628899c5e8dca3ebf8a93abb9.JPG

Dendrobium lodddigesii Can see how it can be confused w/ the pink - flowering form of D. farmeri.

SAM_2344.thumb.JPG.c6fbee54d021603fbb78b8eaad29fb75.JPG

1957415358_SAM_2346(2).thumb.jpg.2ae736164c176df0cb8f66cf12634347.jpg

Dendrobium anosmum ..often called " Hono Hono "  in Hawaii.. ( What my Grandma / Aunties called it anyway ) ** Of note:  Dendrobium superbum ( and a form ..i think.. called " Nestor " ) are considered a variety of anosmum by some growers. Other folks separate the two. Flowers are colored essentially the same, same plastic-y Strawberry / Raspberry fragrance.

@Cindy Adair  ..Knew i'd recognized seeing this Dendrobium being sold at just about any plant - related sale that was selling Orchids..  Dendrobium aphyllum

SAM_2343.thumb.JPG.7f5e53974ac8dafe707e4ecac806cd93.JPG

Dendrobium ..aggregatum  ..or lindleyi ( they look very similar / grow in a similar way. ) Have heard some conversations where the two are lumped together.. I stayed out of that rabbit hole, lol.

SAM_2351.thumb.JPG.5c84211a04c46b771fb8944f4dac1e95.JPG



Some Vandas..  Would be fun to try here.

Sedirea (Aerides) japonica popped open some flowers this last week.

Lovely!
 

Heading to Tamiami orchid show tomorrow evening!
 

I’ll try to grab some photos once I run out of my budgeted money for new plants.

Can’t remember if I already posted this one on here—sometimes get confused if I posted on orchid board or PT orchid forum.  I believe this has Cattleya mossiae in its background.  Very reliable springtime  bloomer even after spending dismal New England winters indoors. I think it had approximately 12 blooms this year.  Purchased as a NOID over 30 years ago.

Sounds like a an amazing event.  I need to get to south Florida again soon.  Have opportunity to purchase more Joey palms but no one that I’ve contacted yet will ship them up north.  Pick up only:(

I attended only the preview event and they even let me enter before the listed start time of 6 pm.  

As you can see from the photos it was not crowded! It did get a little more crowded by the time I left but never waited in a line to pay and (masked by choice) I felt pretty safe.

I bypassed the food and drinks until I was ready to leave. 

I had to wait for a few vendors to return with their food (or buying from others I expect) to pay but just tucked my selections aside so someone else wouldn’t grab them first.

Bare rooted everything and no airport issues. PR is US.

I did get a few orchids (couldn’t resist two beauties from Motes) but selected ones not in bloom so nothing really to see in a post.

I got one of the cute “Bumble bee” orchids with the yellow and black blooms in the photo above.
 

Mine has small buds that I packed to try to save for the flight.

Plus a nice deep purple phal and the other purple hybrid in the photo (again mine is in bud, not bloom).

The Motes orchids are pictured in my sink along with some small ornamentals that should be groundcovers for me.
 

I also got a pretty Tillandsia bicolor from Ecuador with very dark spots and a bunch of cheap Tropiflora Tillandsias (at $1-$2 each) to glue to styrofoam balls and hang  from trees and give as gifts. I have had good luck with these and zero care needed.

 

If you live in FL head to the Tamiami show!

I like the bumblebee one, very striking appearance!

Anyone know if this is a type of Dendrobium chrysotoxum (fried eggs orchid)?  With the pink color it would likely be nicknamed something else like the confection orchid;).  Whatever it is —-a real show stopper of a specimen!

That there is an excellent pink flowering form of Dendrobium farmeri specimen. D. chrysotoxum will be all yellow.. Sometime with ..or without the darker eye in the Labellum. Both should be fairly easy grows ( within the group of Dendrobium require a cool / or cold winter rest to initiate / set flowers buds )
