    sure will lambert! The last time it was going to bloom, my husband decided to start the clothes dryer and didnt relize that the venting pipe had come off, so it let a large amount of humidty in the house all at once, sooooo my bud got blasted.

    This time I was taking precautions and prewarned him! LOLhehehehe

    Brutal- yes it should be big, I can't wait, this is the first time i have gotton to actually see it bloom, soooo let's cross our fingers!

    Congratulations on your buds !!!!!! It looks like a cocoon waiting to pop open. I don't know why I still don't have a Coryanthes in my collection. I really like this orchids and yet I don't own one. Sometime in the future.

    Sweet! I'd love to have one of these but fear they would be too large for my growing area. Don't know of any "small" varieties
