    Default Clowesia Rebecca Northen 'grapefruit pink'

    I've posted this one before. This year, I finally have what I feel to be a good display! The smell is delightful! I had a better pic, but my clumsy fingers deleted it and trying for another was not working out for me.

    I love it!!! I got to meet Rebecca Northern once. This plant is a very fitting tribute to her. If you can get them, her orchid books are very informing and well written although a little dated now. I would consider your plant to be a part of orchid history in addition to its beauty.

    Great display! It's the first time I've seen this orchid - love the overall shape and color of the flowers. Thanks for sharing, and posting an update as I'm a relatively newer member.
