    Nice but the leaf at the back is quite scary.

    That's a Dend that had some fungal problems. I should cut the leaf off.

    I don't always go for splash petals - too often (IMHO) the three sepals are rather pale and uninteresting, leaving the two p[etals and the lip to do all the work of making a flower worth looking at. But this is not too bad in this respect, and I would label it a keeper.

    I'll probably keep a piece of it Geoff & sell of the rest. I have way better shaped flowers from other plants with similar colourings & patterns. I bought this as a breeder but having had the plant & understand its faults, no way will I use it. The others are way ahead.
