    This one is a beauty Shane, and it seems we're having a lobbii time now. And I guess you enjoy the silence...

    AL, ME TOOOOO! i love them so much...so much so that i didnt list them as my favorite orchid out of fear that it would hear me typing and decide to die out of spite! i have one that has been blooming nonstop for 3years (with a few rests every now and again) whereas previously i had had bad luck with them...im so paranoid about the one ive got i refuse to move it from its 'happy place' ...literally, i have an 'X marks the spot' ...i desperately want to buy one of the SUPER HUGE yellow varieties i keep seeing in the market....but ive only got one "sweet spot"!!!
    what to do, al....what to do?????
