Thanks for the fotos, Charles! Great job growing. I purchased L. fournieri from Wenzel at the WOC in Jan. I placed my keeper into aliflor, about the same size as your lava. I hope to see it bloom next year.

Wenzel was so generous that I had another full sized piece to share with a friend.....and even more was still left over!

Very nice. I believe these rupículous Laelias are now officially Hoffmansegella. I think it will take a while for the new name to catch on somehow.
