Beautiful Eiger Derek !  One I haven't got yet, will have to do something about that.  ;D
And there's no risk we get white fever from looking at Pleiones ... :-X

We all look forward to your first Pleione Rob !  8)

Rob,
I posted Eiger 'To Ah' and Eiger 'To be' on page 2 of this thread.
I don't have 'to See', as I find it quite similer to 'To be'

They're from an identical cross as the original one by Ian Butterfield, made by the Dutch Orchid specialist Jan Berg, who sadly passed away a couple of years ago.  If I remember rightly, he used P. formosana alba instead of the standard P. formosana used by Butterfield to cross it with P. humilis.

Now, please don't tell those Galanthophiles I said this: these white Pleiones are really lovely, aren't they?  8)

Here P. "Burnsall" (yunnanensis x aurita) is starting to flower. It is one of my favourite hybrids, very different (well, as expected from a cross between two unusual species) and much brighter pink than visible on the pictures. The flowers sit on tall stalks, and it multiplies very well - very rewarding, I would say.

Edit : I have reduced the size of your picture to remove the need to scroll across the screen to see the image. Maggi

Thanks, Maggi ! Some day I'll learn which is the right size....

Pleione ueli wackernagel
P. formosana "Polar sun" - shown earlier, now the whole bunch  ;D

Hi All,

Just found the forums from Paul's site. It's great to see so many other Pleione fans!

I'm amazed how many of you have things in flower at the moment, I've got one or two in heavy bud but nothing in flower. I am up near Manchester though.
