I like it, it almost doesn't look like a hybrid (sorry, I'm partial to species). Is it growing on a covered patio? or lean-to greenhouse?
Thanks. I agree. I have more species than hybrids and most of my hybrids are simple hybrids that retain the charm of species. This particular plant is incredibly vigorous - six spikes in the works. My plants are wintering on the patio in a temporary greenhouse that has a small heater from Farmtek that runs at night. This plant is on the way in to the house so we can enjoy the blooms and the fragrance. I hope to have a real greenhouse soon - this is my third year growing orchids.
Then congratulations are in order. Well done.
Love the lip !! i bet it fragrates wonderfully
Check the Santa Barbara Orchid Estate website and you will see a photo of their HUGE specimen plant in bloom. I've seen it in person and it is spectacular when in full bloom. Your post confirms that this must be a really good grower and bloomer. Think I'll have to get a division someday soon.
