Observations and images describing my orchid-growing hobby and the process I use to bring miniature orchids into blossom.

Bulbophyllum psychoon in blossom
Bulbos typically have stinky flowers. This one is no exception, although not the worst I have smelled. It grows at very high humidity (in excess of 90%) under constant air movement and dim lighting (below 700 foot-candles.) It's home range is Vietnam.
We are Bluegreen Vacation Club owners that enjoy vacations in new areas and getting involved doing new activities. For Ross, this usually includes photography--especially local flora. For both of us, this includes sampling the local food and shopping. We are always looking for that perfect dessert as well as another hat or t-shirt or, perhaps, a candle or two.
