    Intermediate grower. Flowers are un-scented.

    The lip looks as if it has a carpet on it. Is it covered with hairs?

    *looks at Forrest* Well, it's not really hair, but it is covered with bristles.

    Should I have asked if it was pubescent? You mean bristles like one finds on a boar or on a brush? Stiff, rigid. Do we think bristles is any more correct botanically than hairs. Clearly, I've stepped in someone else's shit here. ;)
