My orchids - mainly miniature

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

I obtained some interesting orchids during the last months, so I thought I'd start my topic to share some pictures.

I grow most of them in my highland terrarium, and a few in my lowland terrarium.

 

Here are my "orchids balconies" in the highland terrarium:

As you might remember from my other post, I have a Masdevallia princeps. This one is flowering since early March!!!

You can see the receptacle where the former flowers were attached. There are 2 floral hamps, producing flowers alternatively. I just love it!

And here is the first real miniature flowering: Masdevallia herradurae.

Very  nice set-up, and plants. I actually purchased a Tr. orbicularis yesterday, and hopefully it will not take long for it to arrive,

 

Regards,

A bigger one but not less delicate, and with a wonderful smell: Aerangis biloba.

Again some beautiful orchids.

The second plant is really miniature but nice.

 

After i lost all my plants a few months ago i think i should start again growing some orchids.

 

Best regards,

Daniel

Great looking plants there Vincent, and really well photographed - well done!

I must see about growing these myself as I love miniaturised things (am a fan of terrestrial Utricularia).

Wow, really interesting flowers.

Until now i have not seen pictures of this species.

Please keep on posting pictures of your orchids.

 

Best regards,

Daniel
