Schombolaelia Paul Storm in bloom in Sonoma

Lillian has flowers in bloom right now and more to come. Schombolaelia (Smbl - Laelia x Schromburgkia) Paul Storm is a large cork mount that has responded well to improved conditions. In a year or so we may re-evaluate it to see how we can make it more attractive but for now we will just enjoy the flowers as they open and let new growth develop.

Stanhopea tigrina watch: Day eight. The buds continue to swell. I had to change the scaling to get both buds in the picture.

The spiking this year is interesting. Some years I have had all the spikes open at once. That is quite a show. This year, there are five spikes altogether all at different stages. I may actually be able to get one in bloom to a show and tell.
