Mormodes skinneri
I purchased the plant, actually it was a naked pseudobulb, at the New York Orchid show in April 2001. A new pseudobulb with leaves emerged over the Summer months. From October on watering was stopped alltogether, until the leaves were totally dropped - about two months later. By that time the bare plant started to spike and watering was resumed. The individual flowers took several days to open and measure today 1 x 1.5 inches.

Oncidium Twinkle 'Fragrance Fantasy'
This one is a real charmer, lots of light flowers which give off a pretty scent of Vanilla.

The tiny plant is part of the group in the picture below this one, see the spike with yellowish buds
