    In past years this only had 6 or 7 flowers when it bloomed. I don't know why it has so many flowers this year. I have started using a calcium/magnesium supplement. I don't know if that would have anything to do with it.

    Wonderful Catt! I really like the tall ones. They have such an elegant air about them.

    A funny thing about the stake, Cathy. For some reason this orchid attracted ants when it was in bud. The buds were covered with ants. The only thing I could think of was to put vasaline on the flower spike. The next day it was still covered with ants. They were crawling up the stake and crossing the tie to the flower buds. So I put vasaline on the stakes too and then there were no more ants.

    I can see the Vaseline in the photos, Jeff. I would have to think that this plant was just dripping with honeydew. It looks like the type that would. Its begging to be pollinated

    Jeff,

    This isn't amazing this is unbelievable!
    7 or even more flowers on one spike! Not one of the species used to make this hybrid get this amount of flowers.
    Great growing!
