I have only one of these , with 6-7mm flowers, really sweet little tiny thing, and do not even know its name. Do you know its species name?

Yes, in this thread a lot of nice diamonds of the flora have been shown! Could increase my appetite for orchids...*sigh*

@andreas: now, now, now....that's not playing fair! wistuba doesn't go on tours selling nepenthes and heliamphora in the States! why do you europeans get all the fun!?

Hey - and you Americans have all those great plants just growing in your backyards !
Thanks for the ID

1) have the proper paperwork and import permits to receive the plant directly....
2) wait until they tour in your country, where they ship it to a localized contact who distributes it to you (like Wistuba in the states)
3) you can directly pick up your plants from the flower/garden show that they are touring in....
at least....that's how it works here....
@martin: you mean sarracenia, and vfts? lol....
1) you guys by FAR have your sarracenia collections down to a T when it comes to location data, forms, and such...sure the US is probably the main propagator of outstanding hybrids, but i can only think of meadowview as being the main contender...
2) yeah, we've got VFTs in the wild, but you guys are the ones that are making those freaky TC clones that everybody wants....
3) petiolaris drosera, tuberous drosera, south american drosera, orchidoides utricularia, heliamphora, nepenthes--your side of the pond commercially propagates all these coveted rare species of carnivorous plants like hotcakes....the US has NOTHING, and the only way to get these plants is by importing them from you guys! NOT FAIR!

And Heliamphora ...I have heard once, that they all come from the Americas...same as the orchidioides Utricularia...
hmm - sounds like a promising business idea...
Posted 13 September 2011 - 18:22 PM
but i digress ;) i have a few more orchids to share with you all....then there will probably be only 2 or three more species that will bloom for me by the time winter approaches...

The L. nycteris looks like an alien, and that Pleuro is a beauty too. It is fascinating how nature can come up with these things. Your L. telipogoniflora bring back memories to a rather nice specimen that I had years ago. I got D. laevifolium also, but they don't look as good as your right now.

@christerb: thanks very much!

BTW: The Pleurothallis with herpes looks very beautiful despite its "illness" ;-)
Yes, Martin is actually wrong! You Americans have a good reason to be envious about us Europeans. Wanna know why? All your nice boggy meadows full of impressive Sarracenia pitchers will disappear soon as will the spectacular places with thousands of Darlingtonias due to lack of protection of these areas... DUCK and RUN...
I´m just a cynic, don´t hate me!
I really hope you´ll manage to keep your nice habitats of CPs!
And please keep on showing us your orchids!
