    What a great hybrid - it must be both strong and very delicate at the same time. Kudos to you for blooming it - can't wait for the results.

    Default Update.

    It is getting really close. I also added Paph. Berenice, which ended up loosing one of two buds.

    Looking good! I can sympathize with the bud loss - I didn't lose any with my Berenice, but I just lost one on an early-spiking Muriel's Pearl - hoping for the best with the second one.

    Maura, I must say it might be my own fault. As the first bid was developing, I stuck a stick for the support. It then turned brown. But it did not affect the entire spike. **Whew**

    I will take one flower this year.

    You never really know if anything you did was the bud-blaster - don't blame yourself, but I agree with your attitude about having one bloom - I'll ALWAYS take that!
