    No Bruce, it is the L.B. Just the angle of the camera shot.

    Beautiful Geoff. How big is your pot? The roots look very healthy. In fact better than mine. I have ordered some coarse perlite for when I repot the little darling. Do you mix the perlite with the coarse grit?

    Your Lava Burst has probably doubled in size by now. Since I put mine on a mount, it has gone backwards, it has flowered (last month), but not the most brilliant of blossoms, only 1 shoot. I think I might put it back into a little pot with perlite and gravel, when the flower drops off. Because of my not having time to water the mounted orchids as often as they need, I'm convinced the pots would be a better culture for them. Some of my Tolumnias also are not looking the best.
