    Here are some pictures in my own thread. I'm sorry if I took anything away from the other thread and it's lovely flowers! This is my favorite orchid at this time, just LOVE it! The pictures in this post are the flower that is open now. That lip is like velvet, so pretty! I'll post the two pictures from the first bloom that unfortunately got broken, too.

    This is the first bloom. BTW, I purchased this plant last fall as "blooming size" and am very happy with the vendor I got it and two other plants from. Well, I seem to be having a bit of trouble with the pictures, I accidently put two from above and haven't seem to have gotten rid of them! Anyway, the top two pictures are of the original flower.

    It came to me in good shape, nice blooming size plant. I just watered it when it was dry, kept it in a bright window, gave it weak fertilizer every week or so and it grew two nice new growths and each one of them flowered. It's potted in med/large bark from the grower.

    I was pretty sad for a day or two - it only had two buds and to lose one flower was pretty upsetting. The nice thing is, it has two growing leads and each one was blooming, so I can expect it to have multiple blooms in the future too. I have to admit though, my daughter is already begging me for a start... lol
