Tropical Orchid Farm Haul

I just received my purchases from TOF. I'm doing the happy dance over the quality of the plants. The packing was just stupendous.

I ordered:

Bulbophyllum saurocephalum (in spike/flower)
Coelogyne fimbriata 'Mini'
Bulbophyllum pardalotum
Bulbophyllum sp. 'Rosary Beads' (a real cutie)
Maxillaria fredrichsthalii
Maxillaria huntii (another cutie)
Sobralia gentryi (very tall with a lot of canes)
Epidendrum sancti-ramoni (oh, I'm going to enjoy this one)
Coelogyne xrekes
Plectrelminthus caudatus
and a bonus plant of Maxillaria uncata 'Lineas Rojas'

All are in beautiful condition and quite large. If anyone wonders whether or not to order from TOF, I say "go for it". You won't regret it.

Sweet haul! Lots of nice little minis in there for sure. Feel free to post pictures of your plants even if not in bloom :)

Hi Calvin,

I would but I have an older camera and need to get a new disk reader for it.

I'm hoping I can easily mount the Epi. It's got a ton of tiny leads. I'd also like to try the Plectrelminthus caudatus in a wooden basket since it's supposed to be grown similar to a vanda.

Have you got any of these?


RE: Tropical Orchid Farm Haul

Has your Maxillaria huntii bloomed? Mine is growing very well (at least 60 fat leaves, but no flowers yet.
