    Default Pot. Hwa Yuan Gold 'YK#2'

    This won the award at one of the NY shows for the best orchid ($10,000 I think). The next year it won nothing because everyone was convinced it was treated with hormones to produce such large flowers. They were huge. Maybe 8 inches across, and a lot of them.

    I bought a few seedlings there and the a bunch of plugs. They bloom pretty easily and the flowers are this nice, but not as big. They are probably closer to 5-6 inches.

    For me, hard to say. My own plant is not that old yet, so I cannot speak much about the growth. i would say, dense growth. But let's continue to observe it...
