This must top the ERK thing! This is going to be the 4th blooming of my Ascda Karen Ono and this time withtwo spikes. While shifting the other vandas around, look what hapopened - I broke one of the two spikes. What would have been a spectacular show is now reduced to just another blooming. Incidentally the other vandas in the pictures are all spiking.

First rule in orchid judging-unless you're the judge, your opinion doesn't matter. Trust me, that can be an erk too .
yes it is, i went around with the judging panel to see how it all works, and they asked my vote on a odont. i said i liked that one on the left, because it had good flower count, shape, clear colour (brown centre with red specks and a crisp white lining on petals/sepals), and 3 spikes while the others had 1or 2. They all said ok that sounds good. but ended up voting a bland dark pink one as first.
Can't remember if anyone mentioned this one previously, and I was too lazy to go back and read all the old ones -- but I'm really getting erked with all the name changes happening in the orchid world (the catt/laelia/sophronitis group being among the most annoying in this regard).
And I'll third that one, Yew & Connie! I'm using the old names, too...Betty :-)
