    Hi all,
    I just meant that your Restrepia trihoglossa was similarly coloured, but would be more problematic to keep outside of a terrarium.

    It is in Greece. Unfortunately I will move to another place soon and put my apartment for sale in Greece but for sure will take all my plants with me. Hope to take a place with a bigger balcony )))

    Hi all,
    Not an orchid, but another strange Hippeastrum.

    Hippeastrum cybister "Sumatra".

    What substrate is best for orchids guys?

    I've been torturing one in my fish tank for possibly 9 months now. It's growing but it won't flower on me. It is in better condition than when it was given to me but I am guessing it's a bit too wet for it in there? I don't even know what species it is.

    Hi all,
    Another one, this one lives in the kitchen and the flowers only last about four days in good condition. It doesn't really show on the photo, but the tepals are really thick and substantial/

    I don't know what variety it is, it was a remaindered bulb, bought after christmas in the supermarket. I've had it for ~10 years, and it has had to put up with a fair bit of neglect (and being eaten by Large Narcissus Bulb fly).

    Yes, they add color pigment through water in the nursery. Just like the blue Phalaenopsis.

    Being a Show Manager for a very large Orchid Society for many years I must have seen 100s of beautiful Orchids and never any thing like those. I can assure you they would never be allowed to be either on show or Judged.

    Sorry I would never have them in our home, the wife was looking over my shoulder and said the same thing.
