    Whoa........... that is just gorgeous!! For me, it's a show stopper with that beautiful color.

    I have developed a new found joy in ground orchids. They just always surprise me and make me smile.

    Congrats on this beauty Ron!!

    Nice, spathoglottis plicata is very common in India. This colour and a few species with pink and yellow colour.

    hi andrea,
    thanks, but im sorry for you plant. hmm, thats unusual for younger shoots to shrivel, for older leaves its normal for it is a semi deciduous plant.
    i only noticed the plant can be in trouble with rotting, if the bulb is too deep in soil, let the top of the bulb just stick out.
    pls take your bulb out and check for rotten parts, clean it and let it dry up in the sun and pot again with less watering the first days.

    other than that, those plants are extremely hardy.

    hope i could help,

    hi amey,
    yes, they come in some stunning colours and the hybrids are fantastic too!
    i was after the yellow species, which is much more rare, finally found one and quit on me due to rotting. it was a tiny baby and didnt have much of a bulb and strength.

    Well done Ron, this is beautiful, I love the shape of the blooms.
    Is it fragrant?
