    Default HC445 Otaara (Maui Maid X Dr. Joe Walker) 'Paradise'

    This is another orchid that I bought in Florida in January for $8. The color reminds me of paradise and the morning floral scent just adds to that illusion. According to the tag it was deflasked in 2000.This one is definately a keeper and one to keep an eye on.

    This is the kind of bloom that just kind of draws you in. Beauty varying from the color of that bold lip, to the light accents on the petals. BY THE WAY i should of know it was you who took that beveled glass top patio table that I left back in Florida in 1978!!! AL

    Yup, definitely to look out for. A multiple blooming spike would be simply out of this world.
