    Default Dracula bella

    The full name is Dracula bella 'Marsh Hollow' AM/AOS. This is the first flower on my one and only Drac. The full spread is about 8" so couldn't get everything in focus. I have to get a few more of these and maybe some Masdevallia

    That is a very cool flower, Chris. I'm really loving the "stippling effects" that I am seeing on the Orchids. My eyes travel all around the blossom easily, taking in its entire beauty.

    Thank you folks! I used to lose all of the cool growers in the summer heat but I think the basement room has solved that. Of course they probably could have spent the summer outside this year. Supposed to go down to 9C or 48F the next couple of nights. Jeesh!
