    An easy grower. I got this one last year. The more common clone in the US has flowers that are much more white. Also, the lip on the other one is generally white/cream/pink. This one is orange. Flowers are ~15" long. Hence the name...

    Jon,
    Is that the orange variety from Andy's? The one I bought at WOC from him has 3 spikes.
