  1. My goodness, how beautiful!

  2. Great plants and great photographs!
    The unlabeled intergeneric is probably Odontonia Papageno 'Mi Amour' or one of the other Odontonia Papageno cultivars.

    1. That's a really good guess. I looked so long for the tag, because I really liked those flowers, but couldn't find anything in the vicinity.

    2. Concurring with both Lisa and Anonymous! Thank you, Maria. I have linked this post to mine at

  3. Lindas plantas, imagens maravilhosas.

  4. how do you get a Odontoglossum catatante 'Kilauea Karma' to re-bloom? It was given as a gift to us in full bloom about 1-1/2 years ago. It has not bloomed since, no spikes or otherwise any sort of flowers at all. It is feed with liquid orchid food every 2 wks, in a bright lite window, mild temperatures day and night, no direct sun, in side house. Thanks for suggestions, Mike in Gilroy California 1-26-2015

  5. Wow, that's an eye candy!!

  6. Where they came from so anyway?
