Evening

I got this in a swap last year it has settled in well a very slow plant. I honestly did not think I would get a bloom this year as it was potted last year, from what I have heard is they really dislike disturbance. Very pleased with the colouration as this sepcies dose seem to have a wide variablity.

Always liked the look of this species. As you say, they seem to vary a lot - I've seen good and ugly ones. This one looks really nice. The contrast in the lip is great.

I really like these, had one but lost it, must try again sometime.
Their shape represents everything unusual & exotic I expect from an orchid.

What do you think of the one on this link Chris ?
Because I'm hovering over placing another order and including it?
