    Default Calanthe vestita spike!

    Heya all, it certainly seems like orchid blooming season is fast aproaching here down under!
    I went to the Hawkes Bay Orchid Society show here in NZ on the weekend, via a 12 hr bus trip, and came home with heaps of plants! First to catch my eye on the sales table was a seldom seen Calanthe vestita, in spike to make things better for only 12NZD!

    Sure will! I think it will be white/rosy pink? similar to C. rosea?
