A couple of anceps are spiking.  Here is a youngish plant that is starting to take off.

New Neofinetias

Finally pulled the trigger on a species I've been thinking about for a while, Neofinetia falcata.  The good folks at Cal-Orchid have a nice deal, three for $60 and James Rose threw in 2 smaller seedlings for free.  I thought about basket or mount but in the end decided to re-pot in a airy orchiata bark/perlite mix in a slotted plastic pot.

C. maxima buds

Still alive out here, though work and life have resulted in few posts.

Here is the maxima that I showed last year.  The plant is getting well established and flower count looks to improve.
