    Default Blc Haleahi Sunbow x Bl Richard Mueller

    I got this one in bloom back in May, so I was really happy to see spikes again in Oct I lost 2 spikes due to my cooling-heating incident, so I only have one single flower

    The color fades rather quickly. There is more pink in petals when it just opened, which I didn't capture. From May's bloom, I know the petals will eventually turn into orange with red spots on the lip.

    Thank you for nice comments.
    Orchid like this is a confidence builder for me, even my husband thinks I am doing something right to get them re-bloom for it.
