    Those stripes on the lip make it look so huge. Is it a large bloom or one of those tiny little orchid blooms? Beautiful either way

    Cheers,

    Bruce, I didn't measure, but it is not very tiny, The main part of the flower is about 1.5" long.

    Oh cool. I thought it was your close-up photo making it look huge. I really like this one, but have terrible luck with orchids that need to be kept on the cool side.
