:) their names are in the image descriptions if you plan to shop for any of them.

I've seen half of these in person.Simply amazing specimens, each one of them.

How many have you seen in real life?

Simply Beautiful !!...all of them. I especially like the "Monkey Orchid"

and I have not ever seen any of them in "real life" I can only imagine how much better they look like in person.
