    Lovely! and your flowers seem to be of a fairly good size, with nice strong colour. I have to speak in the past tense because they either don't like me or my growing conditions. I had a white and a red they both croaked.
    Good growing.

    Lovely blooms!!! I'd have to agree with Angela. They don't seem to like me too.

    Very pretty - good form too! In the next 2 or 3 months we'll be seeing a lot of Rhy gigantea. I posted pictures of 2 of my early season gigantea's the "orange' and 'Peach'. 4 more are showing 1 inch spikes. The 'Red' has 2 spikes, in spite of having only one root. 'Spring' is an exciting time here in S E Asia with the Rhyncostylis, Aerides and the soft cane Dendrobiums coming into bloom. Let's hope we see some gorgeous Rhyncostylis from our Thai friends and the dendrobiums from both Thailand and Vietnam and not forgetting those members from India too.

    i remembered after posting this I received all 3 at the same time, all had bark in their baskets, I'm not fond of bark for my growing conditions, so I removed all of it from the white , some from the red and this one I left alone, so maybe thats my answer to their performance.

    What beautiful blooms you have on this Rhynchostylis gigantea. Our Rhynchostylis gigantea 'Spot' is blooming currently too. Must be the season.

    cheers,
