    Default Rhynchostylis coelestis x Christensonia vietnamica

    This orchid came to me in spike, and now there's another spike emerging. I don't think I can really take credit for starting the second one either, just for giving it a home and lots of love & care.

    I really need to stage my pictures better- but no time, no time!

    That is down right beautiful Randy. I know someone who has a similar cross. Might have to invest in a few.

    hey guys, there's a vendor in PA (can I say that, Bruce?) who's got some of these that may be even bigger plants than mine. PM me, and I'll give you the info.
    Amey, I didn't grow this, and only got the plant ~3 months ago, so I'll let someone else who knows more about its culture register and name it.
    But it is a very pretty plant and lovely colors in the flower. The only thing missing is fragrance.
