    Default I'm expecting - orchid about to bloom

    My Trich. Splendidum X lanceanum is about to bloom for the second time.
    Pic.#2 shows the first bloom last year when the spike was only 12 inches long. This year the spike is about 3ft and several branches.
    Will give an update when the buds burst.

    Thanks Mike, I will look into the name you have given.
    I showed this orchid in flower to AOS judges who were here in 2007 and they gave me this name. I forget what the tag said at that time.

    That's a stunner Angela,

    I'm so jealous! You obviously have the ideal climate for them in Barbados. I wish I could grow mule ear oncidiums ... I love them, but they don't love me back.
