    Beautiful orchid bloom - hope all that grow these are there the one day the blooms are open during its blooming cycle. That would be a huge bummer to miss.

    cheers,

    Do you know anything about the pollination strategy relating to this flower? The shape suggests there might be an interesting story behind the structure.

    Gosh, such a pretty flower that is probably missed by many growers, good probability I'd be one. How often does this bloom?
