    Chestburster!

    One of my N. [(mirabilis "wing" x ampullaria "black miracle") x (mirabilis "globosa" x ampullaria "black miracle")] has a strange mutation that appears between the wings of the pitchers, it reminds me of the scene from Alien!
  2. C. follicularis "Coal Mine Beach"
  3. Catopsis berteroniana "near Santa Elena, Gran Sabana"
  4. N. [(mirabilis "wing" x ampullaria "black miracle") x (mirabilis "globosa" x ampullaria "black miracle")]

    U. biloba

    Biloba "Moolooaba" is flowering!
  6. My Brocchinia reducta are both flowering! Here is the one that is further along:
  7. P. (gigantea "purple flower" x emarginata "red leaf")#15
  8. Heliamphora uncinata "Amuri Tepui"
  9. Thanks! I know what you mean about the dark purple, I have a Brasiliorchis schunkeana flowering(below pic), it looks fairly black to the naked eye, but most pictures bring out the reds.
  10. I've got to split up these sinuosa soon, I can't believe how far they've come from spores! I've also got fresh spores available, does anyone have ant fern spores/plants they'd like to trade? I've been after deparioides lately!
  11. Some U. endressii about to bloom:
  12. Thanks! I've also got an FDK "after dark black pearl", hopefully it's next to bloom!
  13. I don't have as many orchids as I used to, but I plan to hang on to this one for as long as possible!
  14. One of my pulchella "Churi Tepui" flowered, nearly dwarfing the pitchers with the bloom, lol.
  15. Please delete this post, the first link I posted resulted in an undersized image, thank you.
  16. Thanks! It's in one of the indirectly-lit trays, every week or so I give it a spraying of very dilute orchid fertilizer. Other than that, highland temperatures, high humidity, and the tray is kept constantly flooded to about a cm.
  17. I may as well start a general thread instead of cluttering this section with posts for one pic at a time. My U. "Nüdlinger Flair" has flowered!
  18. Thank you! They're currently grown under double 4-foot T8 daylight bulbs.
  19. My pulchella "Akopan" bloomed, just as I finally got a new camera!
  20. I've noticed that after spraying or watering my S. brunonianum, they would form unusually large spheres of water in the center of the rosette. This may be connected to a slightly powdery growth on the leaves; whatever water landed on the plants would coalesce into these orbs, with some of the powder floating on the surface. Sorry for the low res pictures. Here is a cristate plant with a water orb: Another brunonianum with a water orb. If you look closely , you can see some fungus gnat larvae that have become trapped in the sphere. Has anyone else grown this plant and witnessed this odd trait?
