bibliofloris's rather large collection of mostly minis

Here's my current collection, all grown indoors:

in any available window:

Bulbophyllum biflorum 'Lil'
Burrageara Nelly Isler 'Swiss Beauty'
Cymbidium Sarah Jean 'Mint Sherbet'
Masdevallia Angel Tang
Masdevallia Celtic Frost
NOID - Miltonia? (Trader Joe's)
NOID - Oncidium? (Trader Joe's)
NOID - square red pot (Trader Joe's)
NOID - square tan pot (Trader Joe's)
Oncidium Twinkle (I suspect, not tagged)
Paphiopedilum Alma Gavaert 'Goto' x lawerenceanum v. hyeanum 'Tradition'
Paphiopedilum - NOID
Paphiopedilum Tuxedo Junction x Macabre
Phalaenopsis - NOID #1
Phalaenopsis - NOID #2
Phalaenopsis stuartiana 'Sogo'
Pleurothallis restrepioides 'Dragonstone'
Pleurothallis restrepioides 'Elfin Beauty'
Vanilla cutting (from my grandmother's - she brought it home from Tahiti (I think?) when I was young, and it grew into a 20+ foot long vine in her dining room)

in the 10-gal terrarium:

Bulbophyllum putidum
Dryadella edwallii
Ornithophora radicans
Phalaenopsis lobbii
Pleurothallis corniculata
Pleurothallis (small yellow)
Stelis (Mexican small green)
Stenocoryne aureofulva
Trichosalpinx ciliaris

in the 29-gal terrarium:

Aerangis citrata
Barbosella cucullata
Bulbophyllum lasiochilum
Bulbophyllum pardalatum
Bulbophyllum zebrinum
Dinema polybulbon
Lepanthopsis astrophora 'Stalky'
Masdevallia herradurae
Mediocalcar decorata
Pleurothallis grobyi
Tolumnia Red Berry

I forgot to say that I'd love to hear if any of these names are incorrect or have changed -- some of these tags are old and worn.
Thanks!

Nice collection you have going!! I have a few of those...I also see a few I want.

The only correction I can see is one of the bulbos...could be a typo...it's putidum rather than patidum.

I'd love to see pics of your aquariums. I have one 45 gal aquarium I use for some of my minis that like higher humidity and I'm always curious/interested in how others have their tanks set up. If you get a chance to take a pic...please post it.

Thank you all! I'll work on getting some photos up soon, though nothing much is blooming right now.

Here are a few photos from my 10 gallon terrarium - it's got 9 orchids in it right now, plus a couple of small ferns.

I just took the "Pleuro. (small yellow)" (that's how it came to me) off its cork mount and mounted it on the outside of a tiny terra cotta pot with no drainage holes full of rainwater. I have another piece of this in my larger terrarium mounted this way and it's doing much better than the cork one was.

I also noticed the Trichosalpinx ciliaris is blooming! Each flower is quite a bit smaller than a pea. I adore it, but sometimes I miss the big event.

Hi bibliofloris,

Nice variety of orchids you have...plus it looks like you have some nice setups. Regarding name changes there has been some in the Pleuro. realm. Pleuro. corniculata and restrepioides have been moved to Stelis. As for Pleuro. grobyi it is now Specklinia grobyi. Don't feel bad I just had to change my labels recently also.

Troy

Thanks, bloomorchidguy! I figure I have a chance of keeping up with all the name changes with all your help...

Stelis restrepioides???? Won't the other Stelis be scared of the big kid in the playground?

Wow bibliofloris your tanks are fantastic. Would you please share your technique on how to build a terrarium? I have an 80ltr tank and a smaller one, the larger tank originally sold for housing snakes (and NO I didn't have a snake) so it is a lot deeper than a normal fish tank.

I have a DENDROBIUM TORRESAE TINY ORCHID on its way and I was thinking that would be a good place to keep him along with a few other minis.

please please

No problem! I made a new thread here, hoping others will talk about their terrariums and how they made them also... Let me know if you have other questions about mine!

It's really been a lot of fun. That Dendrobium is adorable -- I bet you'll have a great time designing the perfect home! I must have rearranged mine about 20 times before I liked how they looked...but it was worth it!
