    Cool growing terrestrial from Madagascar. Leaves are interesting, covered with black spots when small. They fade as the leaves mature but you can see the ghost of them. Got it from Tropical Orchid Farms but they are sold out. Andy has it, be prepared for sticker shock. photo(21).JPG photo(22).JPG photo(23).JPG sticker shock.

    Very cool, Nick! I've thought for years about getting some Cynorkis from Malala/Botanica but never taken the plunge. Can you provide a few details on how you're growing this one? Medium, light, watering, temperature ranges, etc.? Thank you!

    Cool and moist with the Pleuros and Masdies. RO water, fairly good light. Water every 2 to 3 days. Termp from 55F nights to 75 to 80F max daytime.

    Oh that is very nice. (And I like seeing all of its terrestrial neighbors in the first photo.)
