    Well done! That would be a hard one to show. Is it sequential or does it bloom often?

    This species flowers several times a year, but always has the biggest flowershow in late april. 19th this year and 24 april last year.

    I have discovered that if the temperature increases or decreases quickly I will have a smaller flowering 1½ week later.

    You have some wonderful orchids, whenever I see your photos I feel myself so small.
    Well done as always!
