    I have to give you some credit for getting this after seeing pics of your crosses, love them all. This was a replacement plant for an order sent incorrectly, they called me at work at the worst time saying they did not have the plant I had ordered was there something else I would like I remembered the name from your posts and Happy I did. thank you

    Congrats on a truly beautiful bloom. I love the combination of colours.
    LOL your discription of the fragrance reminded me of the 'Fragrance Judge " in Eric Hansen's Book Orchid Fever. Have you read this book? I recommend it , It is an eye opener on many aspects of Orchid growing and collecting
