User's notes

These plants are in the same area as sighting #4417804 (along with another plant just up from them). I know nothing about orchids . . . I'm wondering if these have just recently finished flowering, or are they a month old? Will the top buds still flower? Does this help with IDing at all? (and that's enough with the questions!)

There seems to be some kind of issue with mod alerts, hopefully David can enlighten us.

This was taken in mid Feb. with most of the flowers finished. The top buds would have opened if the conditions remained favourable. Some have been finished for some time as shown by the swollen ovaries or one image with what appears to be ripe capsules. The protruding labellum apex in one image supports its identification.
