    Congratulations. I really love this orchid. Our 'Spots' is more of a solid color, but with a few spots.

    Cheers,

    Thanks All. Amey, the 'Spots" name was on the label. I've looked at so many variations I have no idea if its normal or not. If its 'normal' I can remove the spots name & put my own on it I suppose. Thanks.
    I have one with "Red Spots" on the label in spike but a while off opening, have to wait & see what its like.

    Thanks BD, the description of yours is more in line with what I was expecting. Not disappointed though.

    I think it's the 'normal' gigantea - but then I am not really familiar with the var 'Spots'. The patterning of the spots on the 'normal' gigantea is very variable. I have the alba variety and the 'normal' var . I used to have the red 'Sagarik strain'. I have also seen the var 'illustris' and recently a peach-coloured var.

    This one smells of musky Lemon citrus, with a touch of frangipani
