Brassavola David Sander

First blooming of this primary hybrid between Brassavola cucullata and Brassavola digbyana.  The digbyana parent has since been re-named Rhyncholaelia digbyana, but we'll still call the hybrid a Brassavola.  I sent two siblings of this plant over to Richard at Backbulbs Blog.  I suspect they will look a lot like this plant.

Epidendrum nocturnum

A reliable bloomer, which blooms from both old and new growths.  Nice evening fragrance.

Stanhopea jenischiana update

About three months ago I noticed my S. jenischiana spiking.  Turns out there are two spikes.  The more mature one look set to open flowers next week.  I'm amazed at the resources the plant puts into the flowers.  Looking forward to the (brief) show.
