    Default Grammatophyllum multiflorum (First Ever Blooming)

    I've had this orchid for over three years and I remember asking the grower in Hawaii where I got it from if she had bloomed these before and she said "no". Two spikes budding/blooming with two or three more spikes in the early stages of development. This plant seems to live up to its name.

    nice color pattern, these are one of the easier orchids to transplant, I think, hammer the old pot off and into a larger one, no fussing with the roots.
