Orchids, mono and stereo

Tolumnia Pink Panther

At the orchid show last weekend, I got careless and took my checkbook along. Big mistake. I now have half a shelf of allegedly “easy” orchids under lights in my kitchen. As usual, click to embiggen.

To view a stereo picture, cross your eyes as you look at the image pair until you see three images. Focus on the center image, and the image should snap into three dimensions. It’s not difficult, but it does take a little practice.

Not pictured: the Masdevallia I took home. The dealer claims that he’s been able to accustom many pleurothallids to the Kansas climate. If I can keep this one thriving, I might try growing a Dracula species next year.

Update: Better pictures of Phalaenopsis equestris, and one of Masdevallia Redwing.

Phalaenopsis equestris. The flower is one inch wide.
