    The background looks better in a picture then it is you have to be 3 foot tall or less to stand upright . Be sure to post a picture of your Hoku Gem when it blooms , mine just has the one spike .
    The Hardyana has a sweet scent , it smells up the green house in the am .
    Ennui , they just opened , I got it approx. 3 years ago or more as a little thing in bad shape (cooked) the girl had it in an aquarium along with a Paph. and a Massie . In a hot sunny window it has taken a long time for them to recover . First blooms on this one . Thanks for looking Gin

    Gin (and all)-
    Here is a shot of the Potinara Hoku Gem 'Sunspots' I mentioned with 4 developing spikes. I'll post a photo of it in bloom after they open up. This is a great plant!

    outstanding Hardyana, we really need someone to re-make that cross so it becomes more widely available. those warscewiczii eyes really came through on your cultivar!
