Platanthera cristata. I got them 2 winters ago, and last summer the flowering happened so late that I lost most of the flowers. This year it's coming up ahead of ciliaris, so hopefully I'll enjoy the full bloom:
Cleisocentron gokusingii x merrillianum. The genus Cleisocentron is the only member of the Vanda alliance that exhibits a true blue color, as opposed to the purples normally referred to as blue. It's difficult for the camera to capture, but the sepals and petals are a very pale blue to the eye. I grow this in intermediate, low light conditions:
My favorite orchids are terrestrial orchids. Specifically winter growing Australian terrestrial orchids. Just got these in a group buy from Dr Behrle in Germany. I've tried Thelymitra before with tubers from Australia, but couldn't manage to adapt them to northern hemisphere seasons. 'Cinderella' is a primary hybrid of T. rubra and the famous, but impossible to maintain T. variegata, and is the closest thing to it appearance wise. Hopefully I can post pics of these in flower come spring:
