Size:  175.3 KB Did not realize this was in bloom until too late, the flowers are huge and weigh a lot, they really need to be staked but this plant is in need of repotting I could not get a stake in the pot. The blooms got scrapped up with no support and the winds we've been having, was 4 blooms I cut 1 off because of all the damage

    thanks everyone for your kind comments, I guess neglect can help an orchid. Roy that is why I got this orchid, my mother loved the singer so I thought a good way to remember her.
