    Cool Lc. Crownfox Sweetheart 'Perfection'

    When this plant began crawling over the edge of the pot, things here were crazy and rather than repot I just joined it to some wood and let the plant crawl over to the wood. So far it seems to like the arrangement. The flowers are getting larger and larger and last several weeks....even when I hang it inside to enjoy. Once it is over a little farther the pot will be coming off.

    It is one lazy method for certain, but strangely enough it works. lol The scent carries acrss the porch, smells similar to cinnamon.

    It's just not fair. I have to beg my orchids to stay alive and Connie can just throw them against a pole and they stick and thrive and produce wonders such as these!! Thanks for sharing with us, Connie. I understand why the rest of the snowbirds who don't come to Arizona travel to Florida!

    Very pretty! That's a good way to mount an orchid without any stress to the plant.

    Yeah, it's that humidity of ours. Most humans don't like the humidity levels in my backyard, but the orchids absolutely love it. I take little credit for their state other than the watering and fertilizer I feed them. lol Well, I also sweat my face off repotting them.

    Absolutely stunning!
    It looks like a C. nobilor with splash petals.
