This photo appears on the cover of the German journal Orchideen Journal vol. 2-1, 2014, which provides the official notification of this new orchid species from Laos. It is related to Paphiopedilum canhii. The photo may have been taken in Thailand.

Just opened. It tried to bloom once before but the bud must not have developed. So it is sort of a first-bloom seedling.

First bloom. The camera's close up makes it look more open than it is. It is a bit more than half open. I cut the flower so the plant get started on a second growth.

In the upper cluster I had to remove 3 flowers just before taking it in for judging: something had munched on them.

I believe this orchid should be allowed to go pendent. I will try to grow it that way in the future.

It had no label when I acquired it. There is a nice gloss to the flowers. As with other of the tropical multiflorals I grow, it is a slow grower but quite rewarding when it does finally bloom.

I'm not sure if this is my darkest anceps, but it is quite dark. It is also petite overall. The widest flower is under 8 cm. In sun.

I tried growing this in full sun. It did not do well. In 55% shade it is thriving. Potted in gravel.

The hand-written label says "sulchaki" but perhaps that is a garbled mis-copying of "Sukhakul". It has 11 flowers.

(Traceyanum x erythraaum) From Santa Barbara Orchid Estate. I don't know if it is a meristem or seedling.

It is a seedling. And it turned to have been registered earlier with the name now shown.

The tropical multiflorals are very slow to grow in my outdoor conditions but very rewarding when they do. Judging by this summer, they seem particularly prone to bloom in summer.

Note the specimen Laelia anceps guerrero.

This can be translated as 'Yunnan Snow' or 'Yunnan White Snow' or 'Yunnan Snow White'. It is nicely in bloom again in January 2013: 3 spikes, seven flowers.

I acquired this from Mr Kao (Ching Hua Orchids). Since it was inexpensive I did not have high hopes. But it has turned out quite nice: a rather clear green and with reasonably tall spikes. Ching Hua's latest price list shows Cym goeringiis, so I hope he comes to some of our shows soon.

The flower is 4 3/8 inches across (11.2 cm). It grew even larger after this photo was taken.

Except for the notch in the pouch it looks good. About10 cm across and still growing, I think. First blooming.

I read that this has been listed as a synonym of kanran but is now considered a separate species. In Tokyo I saw a number of small kanrans--perhaps some of them are this species?

My impression so far is that this not a strong grower under my conditions, but it readily spikes and the flowers are long lasting. The first year it bloomed I thought the blooming weakened it, so I cut the spike that emerged the next year. This year it produced 2 spikes and I cut one. I see it is now pushing up yet another spike, which I will cut. Next year I hope to let it put up two spikes.

I posted a photo of this last year, when it had only recently opened and was still more green that this. I'm curious to see if it continues to get more yellow.

First bloom seedling. Only one flower on this one, but good shape.

I received this from a friend almost a year ago. It is growing beautifully--so far. It has 4 more spikes coming and has had very little leaf-tip burning so far (unlike most of my Oriental cymbidiums).

Always a pleasure to see in the summer. Formerly known as Encyclia nemorale.
