    Default Laelia rubescens semi-alba

    Thought I'd post this one today after extricating from between the patio doors and a wire rack that holds a bunch of mounted plants. I think there were 4 spikes last year but there are 11 this year. Hopefully in a week or two all will have at least one open flower. Of course too early to be on any show display tables

    Thanks Jack! When not in flower it goes under lights with onyl 5-6" clearance. I think it's changed location 4 times since September.

    Quick update. Two spikes have finished and the last is just starting to open but this will probably be one of it's best days. Wish I could offer a better pic.
