    Default blc Rustic Spots

    This opened this weekend. Unlike some of my other catts, this one went from spike to bloom very quickly. I got it in November at a orchid society meeting, with no sign of a spike, and not sure what it would look like. It looked like it had recently bloomed, Soon after I got it, it started putting out a new growth, and next thing I knew it was in sheath. I like it a lot, esp the bit of magenta edge on the lip. It may have a subtle scent, but my allergies aren't letting me smell much these days.

    I wondered if this was likely to change colors. Thanks, Rich.
