    The flowers are great, but could it be that I really enjoyed the repartee MORE than the orchid on this string?

    Beautiful. Mine is ages away from being like yours.. Hope it survives and blooms for me! Interestingly, my Rhynchostylis gigantea "spots" bloomed about a month and half back! I keep looking at it almost daily just hoping it would put up another spike now, but unfortunately, does not look like it is in any kind of a mood to grow a spike!

He can visit his Mother and we can run the roads up in Pat's neck of the woods. Remember she is in vanda nirvana.
    Serious bloom color!! I love it
    A trip to Clermont...... I wonder if I register to "Make A Wish" foundation, would they take me there. I will not tell them that I need more orchids, though. Otherwise, I need to work on opening a 'Donation' account with my branch bank friend.

    Roy, I am not sure if I can take an additional accent on top of what I have. A recent experiment with iPhone 4S, Siri identified that she did not quite understand what I said.

    Cool

    I have Rhynchostylis Gigantea Alba also in spike. Have the picture attached. Yours is very beautiful, love the light orange color. Mine has two spikes and I can't wait for opening day. I am going on a cruise on Friday for 4 days I hope I don't miss opening day. What do you think? Have a look at my picture. Can you tell how long it will take if compared to yours?

    Wow, yours is soooooo close, isn't it? I am not sure how quickly they will bloom for you. After mine got to where yours was, my growing space ( garage with lights) got colder at night, which kind slowed the process.

    Cannot wait to see yours in bloom.
