    Default Epicattleya Volcano Trick 'Fireball'

    Two spikes this time. A fireball and a little sparkler.
    It has never grown a spike that tall before.







    I was a little late in taking the pictures. Some of the flower have already fallen or are fading.

    Beautiful! I have the same orchid and it's in bloom now too. I love the colors. It looks to me like an artist designed the flower. I've never had a flower spike as tall as yours though. Good growing.
