Hi Peter,

Never seen such a bulbo before, but whatever it is, it is lovely and I want it!

You could try Peter O'Byrne at Singapore, he used to be on the OGD.

I attended an Orchid show and major sales weekend a week or two ago. Apart from the small collection of plants that followed me out to the bus, this one attached itself to my hand and wouldn't let go. The flowers were damaged a little and this one was the best.
Ascda Marissa's Little Doll. Had 8 flowers on the spike and are approx' 70mm in diameter.

Hello Roy,
Nice colour, hope it grows well. I have the greatest difficulty with Vanda type plants. Had a few in the past but gave up many years ago.
What other plants did you buy?

A few months ago I posted some photos of Paph bellatulum in the wild. I have now updated my web site with a slideshow of the trip undertaken to see these plants − http://www.theorchidman.com/ /gallery/looking-for-paph-bellatulum/

If your interested in Paphs and the kind of habitats that they grow in hopefully you will find something of interest here!

It was a real delight to see these pics. The sheer perfection of the flowers
is quite stunning.

Thanks Peter.

Geoff
