    I don't think it's a very good candidate for me at the moment. I'm keeping the greenhouse at 55F nights and even now I seem to be getting a LOT of light everywhere. I do love that little thing though.

    This guy is back in bloom again. This I think is the most flowers on the spike I have had. 14. A couple still need to open full . It is possibly my nicest orchid. Denver OS has orchid judging monthly. If I can, I am going to go take this for judging this month. If I do, I will let the results be known. It has grown a keiki and it looks to be getting mature enough to bloom too. I can't wait till they are both blooming together!

    It did blast the last spike it had. I found my watering was causing it. So I have changed how I water it when spiking.

    Very beautiful species Harvey the flower count also improved and I saw small keiki which is good enough to separate him from his mother.

    Unfortunately, the Denver OS does not have a July or August meeting so I will not get this judges this blooming. Maybe next time.
