Size:  242.9 KBHi, I posted this orchid because it's the best it has bloomed since I've had it ( about 4 years )
    it has more spikes coming but I'm about to put it outside for the summer and am concerned about the change ruining existing flowers. The one picture I know is poor but I just wanted to show how it is grown. Hank.....Name:  IMG_0571-1.jpg

    Cutie!

    I don't think moving it outside would ruin the existing bloom. It might blast the buds, if you still have them on the plant.

    Beautiful. Not sure about the transition shock question. But I did want to mention that there is no Brassavola Mickey Mouse registered, but I do believe there is a Brassavola nodosa 'Mickey Mouse'.
