    That is really nice. The bloom just at the base of the plant - is that because it is so large it would fall over otherwise?

    Cheers,

    Thanks for your comments. Actually this is bollea alliance" fan shape orchids" which their special characteristic are the blooms arise from the base/leaf axil. For this one because of the inflorescence is so short so it behave like that.

    The plant just about 5 to 6 feet tall with the leaves about 3 to 4 pairs. The fragrant imitate citrus fruits and very long lasting.
