Wow wow wow! I've waited this! It's very cute. The flowers look like angels are bowing:) I love this fragile beauty. Thank you for sharing!

Tokyo, Japan

Thank you both!

goldenfish - can you believe it? Flask-propagated Nago-ran cost over 3000 yen now in Tokyo nurseries. When I bought this one 10 years ago, it was only about 600. I'm hoping that's NOT because it was wild-collected!
BTW - what does the "nago" mean? Nagoya? ;)

duli - waiting anxiously for your Kinabulu pics - you didn't get shots of Paraphalaenopsis or Renanthera did you? Or even better, on the fauna side, Trogonoptera brookiana? Love those birdwings!

Lophophora,
Why do you well remember each price of your plants? Every time I forgot it as soon as I paid. LOL
Nago-ran was found in Nago-mountain (Nago-dake) in OKINAWA for the first time. So, they named it Nago-ran.

Well gf - usually I don't remember, but this...uh...was a special case...er...hmmph (clears throat and turns red)

Ok - so maybe I'm a bit ketchi... ;)

And thank you for the J-info: the kanji wasn't in my Nelson. By "Okinawa", you mean the main isle, not the prefecture, right?




(And *no* Baa, I will not translate 'ketchi' for you.)

That's ok I can guess

Tokyo, Japan

So which one did you guess?

"Wonderful", "Talented", "Handsome", or "Modest"?

;)

You want me to answer ???
