    Really cool orchid. I really love this one and the color is great. I love orange! Almost reminds me of a pansy.

    This beautiful orchid flower just shows what a expert grower you are. Your photographs are very professional also. I only hope I am this good when I grow up! AL

    A stunner !! These polyploids have so much vigor and such nice substance and lasting quality. Someone should take up a program to make all the beautiful prize winning clones into polyploids !! I myself wouldn't mind if I find some like minded people and a lot of cash LOL !
