    Default Wils. Aloha Sparks 'Ruby Eyes'

    This one has two nice spikes. One in bloom and one developing so it will be giving me color for a long time. Unfortunately the top three inches og the blooming spike broke off when I moved it from the basement to an upstairs window. Name:  DSC04051.JPG

    Nice towering flower spike there! sorry to hear about the top, but it's still very impressive nonetheless!

    Yes, it is very nice. Good job blooming it.
    I have another clonal variety of this, still small and I haven't bloomed it yet, but I'm glad Aloha Sparks has such potential!

    Default Potting

    Hi Bill,

    I purchased this orchid while visiting Hawaii last month. Unfortunately, it's not doing so well, and it's been recommended that I repot it.

    Yours is beautiful, and I would be interested to know what you use for potting. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks, Denise
