    Very beautiful. I just received one I've ordered online. According to the vendor it's 24-30 months from blooming size. I hope it will bloom so nice as yours. Any hints on culture?

    May I know if this one has a specific variety name because the colour looks very dark

    Not that I am aware, I got this from a nursery in your area! When I showed them a picture of this at the Redland Orchid Festival in May they thought it looked great and did not mention anything about the color, the owner told me that if I wanted to sell it back to him he would be happy to get it.

    Perhaps they realized some good criteria from it (obviously)! I would have a very hard time to part with my orchid. Would you sell it back to the nursery?

    That would be a big NO!

    Any addict worth their weight in orchids would never sell it back! I found I can't even buy one in bloom as a gift and I end up keeping them.

    I can never get rid of an orchid either. I actually have an agreement with my first orchid that it never has to bloom again and can just be a houseplant. He is perennially in limbo deciding if he will live or not.
