    Rlc. Lucky Strike has been awarded three times according to Orchidwiz, but not my plant. We do not have the possibility to have our orchids judged in India, as we do not have a functioning Orchid society, and that is because there are not many people who grow orchids and that is because orchids are not available here LOL

    The flower size doesn't amazes me to much.
    The lip size is the real amazing part. Maybe 10 to 12 cm? Maybe more. That's big!

    Yes Horst the lip is really huge. What makes it more special, is that inspite of being so big and heavy the pseudobulb and the flower stalk has the strength to bear the weight and they bloom like this perfectly in correct orientation and display without any need of staking, that is something.
