    I am thinking you need a Aerangis luteoalba, Galeottia fimbriata, and Inobulbon munificum. Don't forget a Tuberolabium woodii while you are at it
    I want to repot it, would like to mount it but nervous cuz it looks so healthy except the fact I don't like the looks of the medium. It has emerging buds so I'm worried...

    It is blooming, enjoy your baby, and when it's done carefully remove it from the pot and see if it needs potting. Do you belong to an orchid society/ They are very helpful.

    I actually do not have the egret orchid, but would love to buy one. I was thinking to mount my Leptotes bicolor as well but I am scared that I loose it.

    Very wise Orchidbaby. That certain auction site can occasionally produce something remarkable, but quite often the plants are a disappointment for one reason or another.

    i didn't fight, I looked for orchids that i wanted bur didn't have many bids. Then wait until the last 30 seconds and place my bid. This is a new thing for me, so was very happy. However one i really wanted I sat in front of the computer and had a mind fart, forgot to bid...geez! That was annoying! But I have 3 beauties shipped from Hawaii averaging about $17 a piece (cost plus shipping)..Happy Mother's Day to me

    Know thy seller! I have heard horror stories, but then I also got seriously burned by another on-line source.. You never know.
