That so looks like an insect's head! Wonder what pollinates it in the wild? Tho I guess orchids that imitate insect pollinators tend to imitate their nether regions...

Why can't they make a digi cam that focuses where you point it rather than on the sharpest thing in the view field?!

Milehigh: love your gallery!

Yikes! I suppose I should have qualified those pictures with, "These are not growing in a vivarium, but they would all do well in a vivarium."

I have a few cabinets in my basement that I built that provide viv-like conditions (high RH, decent light, temps btwn 65 & 75). I've been collecting orchids for 5 years, but I just got involved with darts. These plants are growing in non-frog-proof vivarium type thingys. If my d. azureus do well, these will most likely be transferred to vivariums.

Sorry about the misunderstanding.

Still sounds great!! Went to WhitePlains Reptile Expo today, saw Black Jungle's stand, they had lots and lots of orchids. I was amazed!

Oh, those are fantastic! You certainly are successful with orchids. I especially like the brilliant orange Pleurothalis!

Well I can only take full credit for the Haraella odorata. With the others I can only say I managed not to blast the flowers/kill the orchids.

Is that because you've had the H. odorata longer? It is exquisite, BTW. Do its blooms persist very long?

I got the H. odorata in November, it had no spike. It developed the spike about a month and a half later.

Its blooms last a good two to two and half weeks and is fragrant.

Cesar,

That's fantastic! You called it little--is it a dwarf paph? I didn't know there were such things.

Hi Diane,

Well its not much larger than any other vivarium plants I have in there. The plant itself is a max of 6" tall, 6" wide, and the flower spike is another 6" long. The Flower itself seems to be no more than 4 1/2" wide and 4 inches long. So I guess it is small. Not like the big Paphs I saw at orchid shows.

Thanks all for approving!

I just found a nursery near by that has a pretty good tropical selection, and all of their plants are 50% off! I got an alocasia rugosa and a pretty good sized pot of philo. cordatum for 6 bucks. Im going to go back and grab some other things tomorrow.

Wow! So the flower spike actually droops away from the light? How desirable.

Beautiful! I'm really liking the Paph wardi based on Littlefrogs photos but dunno how much it'd take to sway me from sticking with Central/South American plants. Theoretically many Paphs would be biotopically correct with Vietnamese mossy frogs or firebelly toads but that is just based on countries.

Caesar that is nice!

And C'esta'ma, that is mostly due to the heaviness of the flower, not all paphs droop. (Atleast in my XP)
