    Very nice Ron. Does this species go through a dormancy or semi-dormancy? The nice fragrance is a definite plus also. AL

    Hi Al,
    not really, but the flowering is often triggered by rainfall or drop in temperature.

    I wondered about the leaves on this orchid. Thanks Ron. The bloom is really unique.

    cheers,

    One day?! Man that's a bummer! Does it at least bloom frequently through the year?

    Love that first pic! You really captured the beauty of the flower.
