Nice! I've never seen one marked like that.
A little update on the iris/orchid showdown.....
I decided that the iris might enjoy a little more sun so I moved it into the room with the orchids. I thought everyone could get along peacefully. When I went to bed last night, everything was fine. When I woke up this morning it looked like the iris bloom had been blasted by a blowtorch.
Of course, my two orchids aren't saying anything but I know better. My phal especially seemed to be in a chipper mood this morning. I know what it was thinking.....
"We're just as shocked as you. A real travesty....Well, at least I still look beautiful even though I started blooming months ago."
It isn't over yet though. Three more blooms are currently opening on the iris so it's putting up a valiant fight. However, we all know how this will turn out in the end. That's probably why my paph looks so bored sitting in the corner....
"Oh please....Wake me when this wannabe finally stops wasting space in our room."
You have to excuse him. He gets a little crabby sometimes.
