    Hey Tom, this is really nice. The endresianum you posted a while back still stands out to me as the best of the three zootrophion I've seen you post, but this is nifty too.

    That is what I find so strange about Zootrophions. I have a very dark red one and the first time it bloomed, I thought'What is wrong with this orchid'. Hehe...

    Nice coloring on this one, Tom.

    Cheers,
