    Default Psychopsis mariposa [Psychopsis (Onc.) papilio (yellow form) x self] in bloom

    I bought this one at the orchid show in Barcelona on October 12th. It has one branching spike. On each 'branch' is a flower. The leaves are not in a very good shape, but there are at least two new growths. It's in sphagnum (as all the orchids from Ching Hua) so as soon as the blooming is done, I'm going to repot it into something more open and airy. Hope you enjoy it.

    Nice one!

    That is a sequential bloomer so don't cut the spike off. It could send out buds on that spike for a year or more.

    I really need to get a couple of these...

    Can you clarify? Is this Pyp papilio or Pyp Mariposa or ?

    What I've written between [] is what the label says.

    As a matter of fact, next to the blooms you can already see the new buds starting.
