    Default Lc. Gold Digger 'Fuch's Mandarin'

    A bag baby from a big box store that I got in May. Several sheaths were formed but this was the only one that bloomed (maybe more light?)
    Very common, but I love the graceful shape.

    Bag Baby = a small or near blooming sized orchid that is purchased in a plastic bag from a "big box" store. Two big box stores here in the U. S. regularly sell orchids in the Spring.

    Love the color! It bloomed very quickly for you considering this was a bag orchid purchased as recently as May. You're very lucky or just a very good and knowledgable orchid grower.
