    Terrific texture!!! Do you have to water in a special way to keep the blossom so perfect?

    Nope, lol. No time to give it special attention. It gets watered once a week with a fairly high spray hose at the pot level. The orchid hangs about 7 feet up in the air on overhead pipes. I *try* not to get the top of the plant wet, but as I water the next row over, it gets wet. The fans dry them off fairly quickly though.

    Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments.

    Cheers,
