    I believe being the first letter of a sentence overrides the lower case for species, Geoff.

    Lovely flowers, Amey!

    Very nice clone Amey. I agree about the shape of the lip and what about the orientation of the blooms on the spike ? Cycs always seem to be upside down but that doesn't seem to worry the fanciers - see which orchid won the Best Plant of the Show at the recent WOC ...the Cycnodes Taiwan Gold.

    A very interesting story goes with it. When the results were declared everyone was surprised that the Best plant was the Cycnodes Taiwan Gold. If you saw most judging slips it was not the top voted plant, but second or third whereas there was no consensus for the first position, Paphs, Catts a Vanda and a dendrobium, they ate each others votes and finally when a mean was calculated Taiwan gold got the highest mean

    ive had one of these for years, only got it to flower for me twice, it continuously goes through periods of doing very well and then going to absolute rubbish (currently in the rubbish stage) not sure why but then, i have never sat down to really read up on its specifics...so i know it's all my fault! i miss those blooms tho, so i guess it's time to get my study on!!! great job!
