    This is the first time this orchid has bloomed. The plant is young but has developed two spikes. I hope you enjoy. I have not been a member or this forum for long and hope I placed this thread in the appropriate catagory. I chose this catagory because Broughtonia is in the Cattleya Alliance.

    I don't know, Dean. I think you should go with something nicer and just box that homely thing up and send it to me.
