    Default Iwan. Apple Blossom 'Kapoho'

    Here's some pics of a recent acquisition, my roommate's mother got a good deal on this orchid from a vendor because it was in terrible need of repotting and most of the buds had blasted all ready. I figured it would drop the remaining blooms after being divided and repotted but it didn't. I got three divisions out of the one and yesterday they decided to go ahead and open a few of the remaining blooms, so I thought I would share some pics.

    Well done, Shane! Iwan, besides having lovely flowers, usually have a wonderful fragrance as well.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, the flowers are little bit more purple instead of pinkish in the photography. I can detect some fragrance, unfortunately the privet is blooming here and its killing my sinuses so its hard to smell at the present.
