are the edges of the sepals/pertals purple or is it an artefact from the camera?

Hello there,

I am pleased starting growing Pleione again, because my collection completely collapsed in summer 2017 and, because of health problems and with no one to take care of them, almost all died. I was very frustrated and completely not feeling is the mood about growing Pleione again but now my situation is better.
By the way, I ordered some from Maren Talbot (many thanks!) and from Akerne in Belgium (many thanks also for Kenneth)
I hope to be soon able to share with you my Pleione blooms!
I'm already pleased to sea the blooming period is starting for some of you.

Jules

My dear Steve, each time I see your pix, I'm just about blown away by their quality !
When combined with a truly superb pot of humilis, I'm simply lost for words.

Very many thanks Luc.

Here are a few selected forms/clones of Pleione humilis. The first is a form with darkish red markings on the lips -only subtly different from the violet-lipped form:


The second is a single small pseudobulb of Paul Cumbletonís Farrer Medal winning plant:


The third is a single clone that I selected from some seed-raised humilis initially from the labs of Anthura. This single pseudobulb has three flowers of an attractive colour with a faint yellow suffusion showing through the red lip markings:

Hi There,
   Just thought Iíd like to record here, the passing of my mother, on Valentines Day. (14th Feb)

   She died at home, with family, ten days before her 91st Birthday.

   Her final passing was a lot more dignified than some of the near misses of the last few years.

   I attach a photo of her namesake, Muriel Harberd, from a few years ago.

Oh Tim, I am very sorry to hear of your loss - your  Mother was  clearly an inspiration to your  Father  and the two of  them have  added much to our  knowledge of  pleiones. My sincere condolences to you and all your family.
  Mrs Harberd will be  well remembered by the orchid bearing  her name.
