    Funny how small plants give out such large flowers and some of my larger plants have such small flowers. These are the sunniest flowers I've seen in awhile...Very nice! Do these like it warm?

    Wow, that spike is huge compared to the orchid plant. Love the bright, bold yellow blooms.

    That is awesome !! Briegeri is an awesome plant, I really like this one here, it has a very rounded form, should do well as a parent for some hybrids.
    I really like how the long inflorescence places the flowers on the top, far away from the growths.
