    A peloric or semi-peloric form of this species. Recently acquired, so not my culture. I am mildly disappointed in the flower quality, since I remember seeing it very many years ago and in my recollection it was better than this. Maybe if I grow it better than the vendor it will improve - there's a challenge !.

    That is a beautiful nobile variety. I'm sure that it will improve next year.

    It is a beauty to me as well. Peloric or not - stunning blooms and a healthy orchid.

    cheers,
