    Plant is in a 8 inch. pot, has 11 bulbs. Each bulb measures 12 inches high with 2 flower stems that measure 6 inches high. each stem has 8 flowers each flower is 3 inches. I will be transplanting this plant to an 11inch. pot after it drops it flowers. Sorry most of the pictures are of the flowers and don't have a picture of the overall plant. It is a very impressive plant.

    Very pretty. Great rich color. It sounds like a wonderfully healthy orchid. Good job.
