    Default Blc Memoria Crispin Rosales #2

    I didn't think this was going to open because of a clumbsy move on my part....with 3 flowers on the stalk, it hung over and I though it might snap. Well in an effort to tie it up, I did the snapping Much to my suprise all 3 have opened. I think they may have developed larger had I not messed up and I'm not sure the name is correct because the location from which I received the plant is notorious for name changing tags. Anyway, I am thrilled to see it open

    Been there, done that! Used some colorful language too.

    Glad they still opened despite the snappage.

    Nice floof but I don't think it belongs to Mem. Crispin Rosales grex though. The color and the lip don't match.

    Hoa, thanks. I agree with you because it really doesn't look like others that I've seen. They don't have the yellow/deep purple on the lip; they are more uniformly lavender. Anyway, if anyone has a better name, love to hear from you...for now this is what I have and probably a case of name tag pulled out and replaced in the wrong pot!

    Wow, those are glorious colors. And a very forgiving plant, I might add! Congrats!
