Paraphalaenopsis laycockii  A terete leafed species, like all Paraphalaenopsis, requires a warm climate and excellent drainage. Best grown in a small slotted pot or basket in an open media, plants will also do well on a mount, treefern is ideal if available.
Phalaenopsis rosenstromii A warm growing Australian species, similar to Phalaenopsis amabilis. This species comes from a rainforest habitat that has a wet season and a dry season. When in growth, during the warmer wet months of the year, water and fertiliser is beneficial.
Eulophia spectabile A deciduous plant with  partly buried bulbs and large showy flowers to 3cm, cream to red. Terrestrial, requires a humus rich media, good drainage and a dry rest once the leaves have fallen.
 Oncidium altissimum (swartz) Arching spike, flowers in clusters sps & pts yellow with redbrown blotches, lip all yellow.
 
  Highlighted  species linked to photographs and cultural notes.
New in PlantsTop
 
Phalaenopsis lobbii A charming species from India, one of a small group of Phalaenopsis that can be deciduous in the colder climates. This is a cooler growing Phalaenopsis.
Phalaenopsis amboinense  Indonesia Cream yellow, barred red brown. tips flushed yellow, waxy
Phalaenopsis lueddemanniana  Philippines Fragrant, iridescent, amethyst, chestnutbrown, concentric
 cream rings. Delicious fragance, easy grower
Phal sanderiana Philippines Rare species, 2 fine pink clones sib crossed. Grows like stuartiana.
Phalaenopsis aphrodite   Flowers to 7 cm. This is a very robust species and will develop into a large plant. The flowers are a clean pure white and the plants like a slotted pot or basket such as used for the the other large growing phalaenopsis.
 
Highlighted  species linked to photographs and cultural notes.
Ready to Replate.       Top
Ascocentrum curvifolium  produces bright orange red  erect bottle brush like flower spikes. A small grower, this should be grown in a small basket or slotted pot. Growing media needs to be open and well drained.

Ascocentrum aurantiacum  produces bright orange erect bottle brush like flower spikes. A dwarf grower, this should be grown in a small basket or slotted pot. Growing media needs to be open and well drained. Similar to Asco garayi but comes from the Philippines

Brassavola digbyana fimbripetala   Fls to 15cm, green white, lip very fringed, fragrant. Grow as for Cattleya.

Dendrobium anosum var Huttonii  This is a long caned deciduous species that requires a dry rest in winter. With the start of new growth, lots of water and fertiliser will promote long canes and more flowers, which are produced in pairs at the nodes.

Dendrobium parishii A deciduous species similar to  Dendrobium rhodopterygium. A small basket with lots of water and fertiliser as the new growths appear and the flowers fall will produce large stout canes for the next flowering.

Dendrobium sladei  A grastidium section species from New Guinea. The long graceful leafy canes bear cream flowers to about 3 cm across at the leaf axils. Does well on a mount or in a small basket warm to intermediate grower.
Eulophia quartiniana A deciduous plant with above ground or partly buried bulbs and large showy flowers to 4cm, rose pink lip. Terrestrial, requires a humus rich media, good drainage and a dry rest once the leaves have fallen.

Eulophiella roempleriana  A magnificent species that looks more like a climbing Phaius. A large basket or narrow trough & spaghnam moss is the recommended media (spagh/isolote 50/50 seems to work.) The pseudobulbs can be well apart. It may be more of an intermediate grower, not liking hot or dry conditions.

Getting on is when
A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never
 going to drink that much again."
You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet. "My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him? "
"Well," says the vet, "let's have a look at him" So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.
Finally, he says, "I'm going to have to put him down."
"What? Because he's cross-eyed? "  "No, because he's really heavy"

After being arrested for robbery, Quinn hired the best lawyer in
town. "Look," the crook said, "I've got nearly a million in cash
in my bank box. Can you get me off?"
The lawyer said, "Believe me, pal, you will never go to prison
with that kind of money."
And sure enough, he did not. He went to prison flat broke.
