outstanding pictures Kyle! always mind-blowing to see pictures of that flower size!
my two cents to this entire naming nonsense is the man KNEW it was illegal (any idiot who grows slippers knows you can't just bring in a new species) but wanted his name attached to this spectacular species. he got what he wanted and now has to deal with the consequences, along with everyone else who was involved. I have equal disdain for CITES itself as a moronic entity and ludicrous enforcement as it applies to orchids, but those are the rules, and he's being made an example of. OJ killed two people and got off scot free, punishment doesn't fit the crime, too bad so sad. you wanted that plant named after you, don't complain when you get nailed for it.
