All my other December bloomers (species orchids)

This is a lazy post because I am lumping all of my other December orchids into one post. I didn't capture all of my blooming species, some like Bulbophyllum inunctum which recently produced 5 or 6 flowers went by without me taking a single photo of it! Here are just some of my Phalaenopsis orchids. Most are Phalaenopsis cornu cervi. For the larger photos simply click on the thumbnails and you will be taken to the respective Flickr page.

Phalaenopsis sp.

This one is actually fragrant and has a larger lip than normal Phalaenopsis cornu cervi. I believe it to be a natural hybrid of perhaps cc and P. pantherina.

Phalaenopsis cornu cerviPhalaenopsis cornu cervi
Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi or lamelligera according to some people.

Phalaenopsis bellina
Always a favorite of many, Phalaenopsis bellina. This is just one of my many blooming plants. This species is almost never without flower in my shade house. Fragrant and long lasting flowers but often attacked by snails and slugs that chew and destroy the young leaves and fresh flowers.

Cleisostoma discolor
Cleisostoma discolor. This one has been flowering on a gradually extending pendulous inflorescence (now about 2 feet long) for months now.

Acriopsis lilifolia aka Acriopsis javanicaAcriopsis lilifolia aka Acriopsis javanica
Acriopsis lilifolia, also known as A. javanica. A very common orchid often found growing on bamboo. It is the only orchid which I have ever found on bamboo, in fact. Flowers frequently producing multiple inflorescences but not very showy because the flowers are small.

NOID Bulbophyllum sp.NOID Bulbophyllum sp.
This one is an unidentified Bulbophyllum. The flowers are not formed properly.

Coelogyne rochussenii
Another regular bloomer. Coelogyne rochussenii.

Coelogyne swaniana

Coelogyne swaniana. This cluster of flowers are actually emerging late in the season. The height which was a couple months ago saw multiple spikes from all my plants.

Dendrobium lamellatum (Sabah)
Dendrobium lamellatum. This form from Sabah has pinkish petals.

Bulbophyllum medusae, I got three puffs of "fireworks" this time from this small division. It started about a year ago as a 3-4 bulb plant.
