    This is what the tag says, but I call it 'SPOTS'. It produced more flowers than last year and the plant itself is healthy.

    Oh that's incredibly lovely! I think it is one the prettiest gigantea I have ever see, to be honest.

    Naoki; This orchid is fantastic! Those are some of the best spotted flowers I've ever seen and believe me when I say that I know my spots! Please give me a quick PM as to where you purchased this. I can probably guess, but just to make sure.............. Thanks in advance! AL

    It's from our friend, AL. This was one of the plants I ( acutually she ) picked. It came with a spike and bloomed in 2010, but the flower counts were not as many. I am very pleased. Now I am waiting for the scent.

    Naoki, that is a beauty. She picked a great one for you. It is dazzling.

    Not one of mine bloomed this year. I'm not sure what went on. They are growing but no blooms. I going to threaten them with the compost pile.
