    Very interesting orchid. Glad you told about the purple spots on the leaves. I would have thought it to have an issue otherwise. Reminds me of the orchid in the article Pavel posted earlier this week that mimics a disease to attract a certain pollinator. (Though it could simply be that this orchid has purple spots on the leaves and has nothing to do with reproduction. IDK.) Pretty orchid plant and blooms none the less.

    Cheers,
