    Looks like a nice purchase. When I find a plant that is good size and healthy, I will be buying one of these myself. That color and form is fantastic. May I ask how big the flowers are? Thanks, AL

    What a beauty ! Some day I am going to get this one. I always have this one in my wish list, but when i find one, I also find a Cattleya that I need to get hehe, and usually in such situations the Cattleya triumphs hehe.
