    Man I really like this one. I lost the one I had. Am getting away from dendrobiums but might have to rethink that when it comes to this one. Love the color.

    Lovely flower. One of those orchids that many throw away thinking the plant is dead when it isn't. A dormant unicum looks like a dead plant.

    I've seen a couple different hybrids made with this one. In all the ones I've seen, the flower form, and pattern dominate. The color usually does as well but not always to such a strong extent.
