    It's beautiful, Ron..

    I've noticed that most Zygopetalums look almost alike. Therefore, I would hypothesize that out of all the orchids, these have the least amount of genetic variation. I wonder if that has been proven true?

    That is so true. I noticed this also. They do seem the most 'visually' similar between different crosses. Anyone know?

    Beautiful blooms, Ron. I suppose they are fragrant as well?

    Cheers,
