    Ok, well, I'm not an orchid expert - do you happen to know what it is, Pavel? I'd be grateful to know, because then I can contact the grower and perhaps get some sort of resolution, if it is not what I ordered. Does anyone know? I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

    Your best bet, Becky would be to send a pic to the grower and see if they can ID it.

    Thumbs up If you kill one, figure out why and buy another!!

    I got better blooms with the second plant! My guess is with the first, I kept it in my kitchen wayyy too long, and it just didn't have the energy to develop the flowers the way it was supposed to. Not to mention that the plant suffered so much that I have only 1 little pbulb left from it, which is slowly developing a new growth...its pretty pathetic. Anyways, since I knew that I killed it, I bought another one - and this one is doing lightyears better!! These just opened on Thursday Thanks for looking!

    Haha, thank you all for your kind comments...of course the last poorly-bloomed one was my fault, but I always believe that if you fall off the horse, you gotta get back on!!
